The Recruiter Badge is a decoration of the United States military which is awarded to those personnel who have performed recruitment duty as military recruiters to the United States Armed Forces. The Recruiter Badge is issued by every branch of military except for the United States Marine Corps. With the exception of the United States Army, a Recruiting Service Ribbon is also awarded to those personnel who have completed successful tours as military recruiters. The Army Recruiter Identification Badge is presented to active and reserve Army personnel who are assigned to the U.S. Army Recruiting Command (USAREC). The basic badge is a silver crest and may be upgraded with up to three gold achievement stars, centered at the bottom of the badge. Achievement beyond the award of a 3rd gold star is signified in the awarding of the gold recruiter badge.
