    I attended Appleseed in Ramseur, NC where the program was founded. It is a good program.

    Later, I helped put on an Appleseed shoot in Wilmington, NC with a friend that was one of their instructors.

    Sometime after that, my friend left the program - so i have not had further contact.

    I think that the best things about Appleseed are:


    • A sense of reverence for the M1 Garand battle rifle
    • A practical reminder of the importance of citizen soldiers in American history
    • Confirmation of why we have the Second Amendment
    Cheers! Marc

    What caliber rifles do they shoot? A 10/22? AR-15? Hmmm?

    Hmmm...I shot "Marksman" at rifle quals in the Army? I also have a Combat Infantry Award?

    Combat Infantry Badge Information

    I. DESCRIPTION

    A silver and enamel badge 1 inch in height and 3 inches in width, consisting of an infantry musket on a light blue bar with a silver border, on and over an elliptical oak wreath. Stars are added at the top of the wreath to indicate subsequent awards; one star for the second award, two stars for the third award and three stars for the fourth award.

    II. SYMBOLISM

    The bar is blue, the color associated with the Infantry branch. The musket is adapted from the Infantry insignia of branch and represents the first official U.S. shoulder arm, the 1795 model Springfield Arsenal musket. It was adopted as the official Infantry branch insignia in 1924. The oak symbolizes steadfastness, strength and loyalty.

    III. AWARD ELIGIBILITY

    Awarded to personnel in the grade of Colonel or below with an infantry or special forces military occupational specialty who have satisfactorily performed duty while assigned as a member of an infantry/special forces unit, brigade or smaller size, during any period subsequent to 6 December 1941 when the unit was engaged in active ground combat. The policy was expanded to permit award to Command Sergeants Major of infantry battalions or brigades, effective 1 December 1967. Specific criteria for each conflict was also established. Only one award is authorized for service in Vietnam, Laos, the Dominican Republic, Korea (subsequent to 4 January 1969), El Salvador, Grenada, Panama, the Southwest Asia and Somalia, regardless of whether an individual has served in one or more of these areas. The complete criteria for each area and inclusive dates are listed in Army Regulation 600-8-22.

    IV. DATE APPROVED

    The Combat Infantryman Badge was approved by the Secretary of War on 7 October 1943 and announced in War Department Circular 269 dated 27 October 1943. On 8 February 1952, the Chief of Staff, Army, approved a proposal to add stars to the Combat Infantryman Badge to indicate award of the badge in separate wars. Under this change in policy, the badge was no longer limited to a one-time award, but could now be awarded to eligible individuals for each war in which they participated.

    V. SUBDUED BADGES

    Subdued badges are authorized in metal and cloth. The metal badge has a black finish. The cloth badge has olive green base cloth with the rifle, wreath, stars and border of the bar embroidered in black.

    VI. MINIATURE BADGES

    A dress miniature badge, 1 1/4 inches in length is authorized for wear on the mess uniforms. A miniature badge, 1 3/4 inches is also authorized in lieu of the regular size badge.
