Here’s an Army Combat Infantry Badge (CIB) I built for my brother-in-law for his birthday. It’s made of Aspen and painted with automotive Chrome paint. It’s 4’L x 2’H. As always, thanks for looking!

Very nicely done. I’m sure your brother-in-law appreciates that more than you know!

Very nice…..I have a CIB badge that I earned when I was fighting in the jungles of Viet Nam….It takes only 30 days of combat to earn one, but I was in the fighting for months…..If he’s like me, he’s very proud of it, and will appreciate it very much…..A nice jesture on your part to honor him…!!

Thanks to your BIL for his service, and everyone else that has served. I was in the Infantry but thankfully never spent time in combat although it took me years to realize that was a blessing. This is a nice piece of work and I’m sure he’ll appreciate it.

Oh yes the memories
We have something similar in Australia

But just to be different its called an ICB Infantry Combat badge and has a 90 day qualification period.
Maybe we should have also used musket insead of a bayonet, and got better end results.

Its also a stolen valour give away on ANZAC Day, as the wannbes sometimes have it on upside down ! gotya!!

No chance of that with yours! ... unless he is a very big boy!

Nice result a very close representation!

Just goes to show it all happens after “Chocks away”
