    It's tough to tell the exact color of the piping on these caps from the photos and through computer screens, but just do a quick google search for "us garrison cap piping"(don't use the quotation marks) and you should find several charts to compare the colors with to identify the branches from.

    Turned out to be a good idea. Found an eBay guide to these caps that says light blue "infantry".. Brown and white "inactive reserves". Ill keep searching for a second reference but maybe that's correct.
