    The Army is developing a new Expert Action Badge for soldiers who aren't grunts

    " Army Training and Doctrine Command is hoping to roll out a new badge for soldiers outside of the infantry and medic military occupational specialties, according to the command's top enlisted soldier.

    Command Sgt. Maj. David Davenport said the Expert Action Badge will be very similar to the Expert Infantryman Badge and the Expert Field Medical Badge. If approved, soldiers could see the badge by October 2019.

    “This is for the remainder of MOSs that don’t have a formal way of certifying competencies associated with their MOSs,” Davenport said Friday during a conference call with reporters. "

    Gotta give it to the Army, ribbons, badges and metals galore, I'm shocked they don't give out Purple Hearts for crashing a drone.
