Vietnam Air Assault Badge

    LENGTH: 1.5"
    WIDTH: .75"

    This is an authentic U.S. Military issued air assault badge from the 70's marked G.I. and I.I.C (International - Manufacturer). This pin features a helicopter with up-stretched wings on either side. The Air Assault Badge[2] is awarded by the U.S. Army for successful completion of the Air Assault School. The course includes three phases of instruction involving U.S. Army rotary wing aircraft: combat air assault operations; rigging and slingloading operations; and rappelling from a helicopter. Earning an air assault badge is/was quite a feat and involved many grueling days of training including; a 12-mile foot march in full gear plus a rucksack in less than three hours. This would be a great gift for someone who collects military badges and pins!

    CONDITION: Some general wear but no significant flaws. The back pin closures work well.
