    New Expert Qualification Badge Clasp


    Col Penny

    Attention All Hands,

     

    In Marine Corps Awards and Decorations there is a specific device attachment for the Expert Qualification Badge. When qualifying Expert multiple times in a row, you are awarded a clasp for your badge between the top clasp and the badge itself. We will now be implementing this.

     

    Qualifying for Expert will gain you the Expert Qualification Badge. Qualifying a second time in a row (years.. not attempts) will gain you a device just below the clasp that states '2nd Award'. A third qualification in a row will change that device to '3rd Award', and so on and so forth. If any year you do not qualify Expert, you start over. This means if you qualify Expert years one and two (and thus have the 2nd Award device), then year three score Sharpshooter, qualifying year four as Expert will gain you the normal Expert Qualification Badge again.

     

    This award is effectively immediately and will be retroactive. That means those of you who have already qualified multiple years in a row as Expert will start seeing these devices appear in your next A&D update.

     

    For reference, this is what the award will look similar to.
