The color of the piping (braid) is determined both by the type of hat and whether you are an officer.  

All Life Member caps have blue piping and all All-State Team Caps have gold piping.  

For all other caps:

Gold: Post Officers, members and Past Post Commanders 

Blue: County Council Officers  and Past County Council Commanders 

Green: District Officers (except District Commanders and Past District Commanders) 

Red: Department Officers, Past Department Officers, Conference Officers, District Commanders and Past District Commanders 

Silver: National Officers and Past Commanders-in-Chief 

For more information see the VFW Manual of Procedure, Article VIII, Section 803.
