I have one of these civilian brassards as well.

I saw an eBay listing for one that said something to the effect that it was worn by civilian contractors to help military personal with new technology equipment that had not been much in use yet, during the Gulf War. The listing further says that these civilians were given the honorary rank of Major to allow them some authority over the military personal they were working with.

I cannot confirm or discount this, but share it as possibly another explanation of the brassard.
