2 CMBG tried to turn the bear around so that it would face forward when worn on the right sleeve but they ran afoul of the heraldry folks. Their answer was to start wearing it on the left sleeve. Not sure how long that lasted but they now wear it on the right with the bear "running away." Incidently, there were two sample runs of badges for garrison and DEU made with the bear facing to the right, five of each type for a grand total of 20 badges. Mike has pictures of them on the website.
