When we think about military lapel pins, we think of those shining pins with the insignia of a specific branch of the United States Military. Some of us might even picture the American flag pin that the President typically wears. Military lapel pins are an important part of military life and an important part of the military uniform. 

There are hundreds of different types of pins that the military uses, from military rank pins to ceremonial pins. If you are looking to honor someone with a military pin, find out more about the different types of pins and their specific meanings. 

The most popular and well-known kinds of pins are those that represent each branch of the United States Armed Forces. This tradition can be dated all the way back to the Civil War. Soldiers were required to wear lapel pins that showed their unit number. 

This evolved into a tradition that focuses on loyalty and allegiance to a particular unit or branch through the years. These days veterans, family members, and more can be seen wearing lapel pins with Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard insignia. Before creating a custom military lapel pin, consult military members or experts and be sure to represent your chosen military branch correctly. 

Military medal hat pins are also popular. These pins are typically given out to honor men and women under special circumstances. Examples of these pins include Operation Enduring Freedom pins, the Purple Heart pin, and the prisoner of war (POW) or missing in action (MIA) pins. These medals are generally made as hat pins and may be used to commemorate significant events or achievements by groups or individuals. 

Ceremonial military pins are also an essential part of military tradition. Gaining promotion in the military comes with a pinning ceremony. These ceremonies are an important way to recognize military men and women across all United States military branches. You can even hold a special pinning ceremony for a veteran in your area. Show your appreciation by creating a military pin tailored specifically for them. 

Finally, what about patriotic pins? If you are simply looking for a way to show your appreciation and support for our troops, a simple American flag lapel pin might be the best choice. An eagle or fireworks are also great options, though they lend themselves to celebratory occasions. Don't be afraid to get creative and showcase your patriotism boldly and colorfully!
