Most vets hate seeing patches on people not in uniform. Wearing 101st Screaming Eagles patch in some places of the US is likely to get your face re-arranged should you show up here. However, as you're overseas you could likely get away with it. If you must do so, put it an inch down from the top of the left shoulder which signifies being in the unit. As that's something you haven't done, I'm at a loss as to why you'd want to say you were. Putting it on the right shoulder signifies you fought in combat with that unit. Putting the patch there would be the height of disrespect.

Aside from the question having been addressed as to patch placement, by a 22 year veteran of the Army and needing no further explanation.

Wrong.

Name Tape - above right pocket
Branch Tape- Above Left Pocket
Rank Insignia- On collar points Enlisted, On epaulets for officers.

If you are a private E1 you have no insignia. If you have no insignia you don't have to worry about it's placement. 'kay.

Actually no. In the Army a Private E-1 has no stripe, A Private E-2 has 1 Stripe and a Private First Class E-3 has a Stripe with a Rocker AKA a Hersheys Kiss.

I would seriously advice you to listen to members who have a LOT more experience than you Turner, or you can find somewhere else to spend your time!
