    Horizontally, the name tag is positioned with its center directly above the center of the button.

    The bottom of the torch disk is placed 1 inch above the notch (letter "A"), and centered on the collar so that distance "B" = distance "C"...
    'A'=1 in., 'B'='C'
    and the bottom of the torch is facing parallel to the inside edge of the collar.

    Officer Brass
    First, locate the notch in the collar. This is base reference point for all placement.
    In your mind, picture a reference line that bisects the notch and runs parallel with the line of the collar.
    Measure up 5/8 inch from the notch of the collar.
    Officers wear the ROTC insignia 5/8 inch above the notch of the collar, with the centerline of the insignia bisecting the notch.
    Officers also wear the Torch which is placed 5/8 inch below the notch
    Note that the line you mentally pictured running parallel to the inside edge of the color also bisects the centerline of the torch.
    5/8 in. Above and Below, Parallel

    When a cadet wears an odd number of arches (e.g. 1,3, or 5) the arches are positioned as follows: Place the first arch so it is centered between the bottom of the pocket flap and the bottom of the pocket so that distance "A" = distance "B"

    The following arches are placed 1/8 inch above and below (respectively) of the center arch. This can be very difficult to measure, as not all arches have the same radius and therefore do not maintain a uniform distance of separation from each other. To solve this, measure from the point where the two arches are closest, and maintain the 1/8 inch separation at this point.
