Recently I was walking around Bliss and noticed a 1LT wearing his NG Master recruiting badge. Officers are allowed to only wear the NG Master badge in recruiting as a permanent badge. Senior and basic are not authorized. It got me thinking... is the Army Instructor badge permanent? Like the AC recruiter badge? I tried to find guidance on this but came up with no luck. Have any former Instructors on here commissioned? Please drop knowledge. It does not apply to me whatsoever, I’m just curious.

Yes. It can actually be warned as a commissioned Officer. I know multiple officers here at Huachuca that served as BOLC instructors and where the instructor badge as company commanders (aka no longer in the position).

SGT(P) (Join to see) yes, all levels. Officers will likely not stay in an instuctor position long enough to qualify for a Master level, but they are eligible. I've only seen basic badges processed for officers. There are not many positions out there that apply to officers, outside of OES - BOLC/CCC

I wore Air Force Master Instructor Badge when I was an SFC teaching enlisted 98G (now 35P) at Goodfellow AFB. Later, I wore Army Master Instructor as a CWO when I was teaching 35G advanced class at Fort Huachuca.

I've seen NCOs wearing it after assignment. Also the White House badge.

Air Force is allowed to wear just their highest award if they wish. I knew an NCO.

Yes, former enlisted who earn specialty badges while serving, Drill Sergeant etc. can wear what they earned. Thank you for your service.
