Drill Instructor Breast Badge
The U.S. Army Drill Instructor Badge is a gold plated metal and enamel insignia, 2 inches in width and 1 51/64 inches in height, consisting of a flaming torch above a breast plate and jupon in front of a rattlesnake on a green background, grasping in its mouth at upper right and with its tail at upper left, the ends of an encircling scroll inscribed "THIS WE'LL DEFEND" in black letters, between 13 black stars, 7 on the left and 6 on the right.
Some elements of the design are adapted from the United States Army Flag and the Seal of the Department of the Army (a snake, the motto and scroll and the armor). Also contained in the design is the torch of liberty and 13 stars.
The Commandant of the Drill Sergeant course may award the badge upon successful completion of the Drill Sergeant course and assignment as a drill sergeant to a training command. The Commandant of the Drill Sergeant School will authorize the permanent wear of the badge to eligible personnel by memorandum. Officers are authorized to wear this badge if it was permanently awarded to them while in an enlisted status.
Our Regulation Full Size Drill Instructor Badge is a color enameled gold plated badge. This is the same badge supplied to the U.S Army and sold in Army Base Exchanges.
