Joint Chiefs of Staff Identification Badge

The Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Identification Badge is a U.S. Military badge presented to the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff upon appointment to position as either a Service Head, Vice Chairman, or Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The decoration is also authorized to staff and support personnel assigned to the Office of the Joint Chiefs. Individuals may qualify for permanent wear of this badge after being assigned to the staff for one year on active duty or two years as a reservist.

The Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Identification Badge was first approved in February 1963 and has remained unchanged in appearance.
