Re: Expert Infantrymans Badge
I'm stationed at Ft. Stewart...EIBs are for Infantrymen that perform a Infantry soldier skills tests. There are 36 Tasks that must be completed to standard. Some are timed, some are in sequence, some are both and so on..You are either a GO or NO GO at a task. If you recieve a NO GO then you must retest on the task. If when you retest you recieve another NO GO on the retest then are out of course. If you recieve a total of 3 NO GOs throughout the course then you are out. So a Double NO GO on one task you are out. And if NO GO on any three then you are out. True Blue is if recieve ALL GOs. Combat Infantrymans Badge is obviously not to hard to recieve since OIF and OEF.. We all got shot at and mortared a few IEDs where we were at.But EIB is a lil bit more conveted among Infantrymen...
On the EIB badge the rifle is cocked and on the CIB the rifle had been fired (hammer forward)
