Frequently Asked Questions:

What do I wear if my CSIB is not produced yet? Through an ALARACT message, the Army authorizes the temporary wear of the following badges: Multi-National Force-Iraq, USAE US Forces-Afghanistan, and Special Operations Command, Pacific for Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Philippines respectively.

When is my unit's CSIB becoming available? The Institute of Heraldry maintains a list of the completed CSIB designs. If your unit is not on the list, there is a good chance the badge is in design. We recommend occasionally checking the TIOH website to see if the unit page has an updated CSIB design listed.

Why is it taking so long to make these? Each CSIB has to go through an approval process with the Institute of Heraldry. There will be around 500 different CSIB’s produced and the entire process will take about 5 years.
