This is the first episode soldiers are wearing A.S. ARMY tags instead of U.S. Army. Many of the badges have changes also, and are similar to current U.S. standards. The subdued flag is now worn on the right arm while the unit patch is also subdued on the left arm. It is interesting to note that no Soldiers are wearing combat badges. Jericho is set after or during Operation Iraqi and Enduring Freedom, so any veterans of that war should be wearing unit patches on their right arm indicating the units they've served with overseas. If the 10th Mountain Division has been maintained, one would assume prior service be respected under the new government.
