Military badges serve a number of different purposes. Some military badges are purely for identification purposes while others denote rank, qualifications and awards. Particularly rare military badges may be obsolete badges that have been retired from use and do not appear on modern precedence charts. Many of these obsolete military badges (for the US military, anyway) were used during the 20th century and phased out after WWII.
There were fewer badges issued in the 19th century, but the oldest US military badges on record do date to the Revolutionary War. Today, identification badges are worn by all members, but are tailored for different duties. If these duties are performed admirably the badges may be rewarded permanently. Some military badges are issued to all service members.
