I picked this U.S. Army Intelligence Center (USAIC) - Fort Huachuca Instructor badge today and it was easy enough to identify.  However, I really can find no information on the badge at all. I would like to know if they still wear the badge and if not what era it may be from and is it a rare item?     Thanks!

I was at the schoolhouse at Fort Huachuca in 1989 and again in 1992-3 and 1998, and I never saw these badges in use. You can probably narrow it down by researching the name: the US Army Intelligence Center & School (USAICS) became the US Army Intelligence Center & Fort Huachuca (USAIC & FH) at some point. That would at least give you an earliest possible date.

I did a little more snooping around and the only thing I came up with is that the center is now actually called the, United States Army Intelligence Center of Excellence and Fort Huachuca.  I actually found the badge a few blocks from the former home of the US Army MI school which was the former Fort Holabird. I appreciate the information.   Thanks!

Try contacting the History Office at Fort Huachuca - they should be able to tell you when the various names are used.
