3. To this effect, the current policy of combat arms (CA) soldiers wearing the combat leaders identification insignia on the uniform is expanded to include leaders of combat support (cs) and combat service support (css) units. additionally, based on these new combative roles our leaders engage in while in the "fighting field" (whether in conus or abroad) the cli insignia requires an alignment in its name to identify today's leaders as unconventional warfighters. to this effect, the insignia currently known as the cli is renamed as the "leaders identification" insignia.
