Reserve Recruiter Badge

The Reserve Recruiter Badge was an identification badge of the United States Army which was first created during the Second World War. The badge was issued until the 1980s, at which time the United States Army declared the award discontinued in favor of the standard Recruiter Badge used by both active duty and reserve recruiters.

During the years of its issuance, the Reserve Recruiter Badge was authorized for wear while serving a tour of duty as a military recruiter for the United States Army Reserve. The badge was not considered a permanent award, and was surrendered at the completion of duties as a reserve recruiter.

In the modern military, the Reserve Recruiter Badge is considered obsolete. Army regulation AR-600-8-22 prohibits the wear of the Reserve Recruiter Badge on an active duty uniform.
