Qualification Insignia of the Combat Infantryman

Item condition: new

The CIB insignia is awarded to infantry and special forces soldiers who fought in active ground combat while assigned as members of either an infantry, ranger or special forces unit, of brigade size or smaller, any time after 6 December 1941.

The CIB and its non-combat contemporary, the Expert Infantryman Badge (EIB) were both created in November 1943 during World War II to enhance the morale and prestige of service in the infantry.

Specifically, it recognizes the inherent sacrifices of all infantrymen, and that, in comparison to all other military occupational specialties, infantrymen face the greatest risk of being wounded or killed in action.
