The Arrowhead

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I would like to open a topic to study the arrowhead devices.

The objective is to verify the models used since the Second War, regulations and the forms that were used.

 

Please , I would like look the contributions of all.

 

My best,

 

Ricardo.

The Arrowhead device is a decoration of the United States Army which is issued as an attachment to certain service medals. The Arrowhead device is awarded to any service member who participates in an amphibious assault, a combat parachute drop, a helicopter assault landing, or a combat glider attack.

 

The arrowhead device is a one time decoration for each service medal and no more than one arrowhead device may be authorized per service medal. As of 2004, the service medals which are authorized the arrowhead device are as follows:

 

Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal

European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal

Korean Service Medal

Vietnam Service Medal

Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal

Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal

Afghanistan Campaign Medal

Iraq Campaign Medal

 

In almost all cases, the arrowhead device is issued with a corresponding campaign service star, which denotes the campaign in which the assault landing was accomplished.

I can see it now where this is leading. There will be a book. Then all the arrowheads will be identified by types. I can see the military shows. There will be a huddle and some guy whispering to another, "You have a type 1 arrowhead there", "No, its a type 8"... w00t.gif
