Re: new US Army Microbadges available
Any chance you could work one up for this?



I'd give it a shot, but my skills at designing microbadges are sorely lacking.

Re: new US Army Microbadges available
Would love to see someone knock out a Combat Action Badge and Combat Infantry Badge if they haven't already. Maybe I looked in the wrong folder ...

Those look pretty amazing to me. Have you already gotten them into the submission process so we can buy them?

Re: new US Army Microbadges available
I'm going to hold off on the Combat and Qualification badges for now, received some good advice that it opens the door for "stolen valor" incidents, false claims or for anyone looking to openly mock and ridicule service members. We'll see what we can do.
I'll stick to Famous WWII Units for now.

Nothing, this was by request, people wanted to avoid the wargame sub-domain.

Re: Famous WWII units (US) microbadges available
Hi everyone, I got a lot of requests and feedback for the Famous WWII units (US) microbadges.

But...once the Famous WWII units (US) microbadges were made there wasn't the same number of buyers as there were requests.
Which is understandable but still slightly disappointing.

So...If those microbadge codes still work now is a great time to use them.



Thanks for all the support! thumbsup

Re: Famous WWII units (US) microbadges available
Can't believe it's been over a year since we started on this journey of the US Army microbadges.
It started with a simple request for one badge (3ID), after getting it approved I never dreamed we would make just a handful more let alone the now over 30 and counting.

Thanks for all the help and suggestions along the way.
These are your badges!

(for me personally it's been a real pleasure to help make something that people can enjoy and be proud of)

Re: Famous WWII units (US) microbadges available

Could someone draw up additional ranks? A few are listed, but there are no tracks or leaves.

Also, while I would be interested in 3rd Army, it is only because I served in it during the Gulf War. Thus, I would want it designated without the "famous WWII" designation.

(my most vivid memory of 3rd Army is that they insisted that we take our gas masks with us when we showered -- something about Patton's heritage about always being correctly "dressed" {this was after the conclusion of hostilities!}).

Re: Famous WWII units (US) microbadges available
My grandfather was a proud member of the 36th Infantry Division in WW2 (The T-patchers) and I would love to honor him with the microbadge.

Thanks in advance!

Any chance of UK regimentals?
