1/16 Gold Star for Air Crew Badge
Honor a Marine's achievements in combat with aircrew gold star badges from SGT GRIT.
A Marine's uniform tells a story of their service through the decorations displayed. The wearing of these decorations are meaningful, because they spell out the service and sacrifice made throughout their career in the USMC.
Combat Aircrew badges are awarded to Marines who serve as aircrew members on board combat flights. The badge has room for small star pins at the top. These pins indicate the number of combat missions that Marine has served in.
This 1/16-inch gold star is made to fit in the standard aircrew badge. It features beveled details and a reliable closure. This pin may be used as a replacement for a Marine who has earned the right to wear it.
IMPORTANT: This is not to be confused with a Gold Star Representative insignia. More information on what it means to be a Gold Star Representative can be found on the USMC's official page.
