A Guide to US Military Insignia

If you ever wanted to learn Military Rank Insigna or the varuious services, then this is the place to find them.

Dan Franks has been working on a big project. It is now finished and is VERY well put together. It is an interactive presentation showing the Military Insignia of all the military service, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines.

He shows the Branch Insignia, Qualification Badges, and Rank Insignia on a varety of uniform types.
I've left out some things, like special duty badges, such as Joint Staff service, and the like, and have confined the presentation to the common uniform insignia. I've done this for two reasons. First, there's about a million special badges across all the armed services. Second, I had to draw about 98% of everything in the presentation by hand. That was just too much work.
Dan's Blog, The QandO Blog, is here, with his post describing the project here.

A Guide to Military Insignia is here.
