I do not have an insignia guide but, it is my understanding that it is
always proper to wear the Eagle Medal on the Uniform. I wear mine from 1943
along with a Silver Beaver from 1977.
When someone quotes the regs, please also respond to wearing the medal on a
civilian suit coat which seems to be catching on.
