Maroon Epaulette Circlets: Barry Board Beginnings
For a very brief period during 1990, these small insignia were added to the Air Force service coat epaulettes above the metal rank insignia already being worn. The circlets were then quickly replaced by the infamous maroon epaulette sleeves, available with or without Velcro. There is very little official documentation about them, except for instructions from the National CAP Bookstore.
