U.S. Army Badges Information
Note: The Institute of Heraldry (TIOH), the authorizing agency for determining the medals and decorations that will be issued to Army veterans through the Veteran Medals Program, implemented a change to the finish of US Army badges. The current silver oxide finish is being phased-out and a nickel-plated shiny finish is being introduced. The transition to the new finish is expected to begin in October 2017. The Veteran Medals Team will make every effort to ensure the finish is the same for all Army badges included in an awards case.
