Expert Infantry BadgeScrolling through Facebook this morning.. came to one of the places that I look at occasionally. I do not really haunt the Infantry sites too much but one page called “11 Bravos” is pretty decent and there are some old ex grunts there too like me who post pictures and such of Ft Benning and a few of otther places I have been when I wore the infantry garb. 

This morning someone posted the question “Who has their E.I.B?” and before I knew it I was posting about the day that I traded Micheal’s CIB for my old rarely seen EIB. and the tears were just there before I knew what was happening. The last few months has been rather trying, between the highway memorial and the Post Office dedication.. I guess this is just starting to get to me. 

My son has my EIB that I earned 5 years before he was born with him.. and its still a crappy trade.Combat Infantry Badge
