Army Drill Instructor Crest
The metal badge was first approved as the distinctive insignia for wear by trainer personnel assigned to U.S. Army Training Activities on 15 January 1958. The insignia for Trainer Personnel was authorized for wear by drill sergeants assigned to training commands in 1964. At this time, the insignia was authorized for wear in metal and embroidered form. The embroidered version was manufactured in full color (yellow, green and black) and subdued. In 1969, policy was changed and it was mandatory to wear subdued insignia on field clothing. At this time, the Drill Sergeant Identification Badge, embroidered, was no longer authorized for wear in full color.
Our Regulation Army Drill Instructor Crest is a gold plated and color enameled metal badge. This is the same cap badge that is supplied to the U.S. Army and sold in Army Base Exchanges.
