I found this photo of a tanker who was in the Army a good 6 months before Pearl Harbor. I know that the badge on the right of the photo is a marksman badge with qualification bars. Can anyone tell me what the medal or badge on the left is? I believe this photo was taken before the war began, based on the AGF shoulder insignia and lack of ribbons. Thanks!

Not "armored infantry," Infantry-Tank. Worn by tankers before Armored Force insignia adopted in 1942. May have been worn in error or tolerated for armored infantry personnel, but that is not its original or official purpose. Was supposed to be obsolete in 1930's, but wear continued nonetheless.
