Background insignia left to right are:

4th Infantry Division-----I Field Force Vietnam----Military Assistance Command Vietnam----US Army Vietnam

During its long service in the Republic of Vietnam, the 1st Battalion 22nd Infantry was directly assigned to each of these major commands. Thus the Regulars of the 1st Battalion wore each of these insignia on their shoulder sleeves, depending upon the time frame in which they served.
