I hate to disagree but I have more than one direct veteran purchase top (BDUs and DCUs) with the combat SSI below the flag patch. I have also seen others that I am okay with patched that way. I agree that it is wrong but I have seen it a number of times. That said, I'm not vouching for this top ......
