Oak Leaf[edit]

It doesn't look like an oak leaf. It looks more like a sycamore leaf. Any explanations on the leaf design?

It is not supposed to be a single leaf. It is a cluster of seven oak leaves arranged in a fanned circle. An oak leaf is somewhat diamond or kite-shaped, and that is what the insignia represents. Whomever altered the description to maple leaf should be shot...that's seriously insulting to the US Military. (talk) 06:20, 10 February 2008 (UTC)jgeiger54

Is there actually any reliable source that defines it as oak leaves, preferably something official from the DoD or so. I think it doesn't really look like oak leaves, not even a cluster, which wouldn't be that symmetric. It looks more like chestnut leaves. (talk) 09:44, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

WP:LE tag removal[edit]

I removed the wikproject law enforcement tag because of extremely limited LE content. This article fits much beter in the military history wikiprojectEMT1871 16:16, 1 February 2007 (UTC)
