Badge Holders for Military Personnel


Badge Holders for Military PersonnelWhen you think of military jobs, the first thought that comes to mind is the four branches: Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. Identification has come a long way since “dog tags.” These sturdy, almost indestructible forms of identification fit for combat, originated during the civil war! Fast forward to today, and the military CAC card, as well as other forms of ID are much more practical, especially for those with desk jobs and support roles. Most military office environments require the CAC card to access any government computers and resources. This not only properly identifies a military worker, it also distinguishes branches and departments from one another as well as quickly identifying who is a civilian and who isn’t.

There are so many options for businesses that want to identify their workers. You can go the less expensive route, or choose something that has better quality and more durability. When it comes to the military, no matter what branch it is, there is a certain standard of excellence that is portrayed—and that excellence is reflected right down to the name tag.

Specialist ID, a company that prides itself in being the best in the badge holder business for 15 years, knows exactly what kind of name badges most military branches prefer.

“Most military personnel like the two-card holder with a lanyard best.” Patrick Barnhill, Founder and Co-Owner of Specialist ID said. “ It is by far the most popular badge holder style for military.”

The two-card holder that Barnhill is referring to is the Rigid Open-Faced 2 - Card Holder (P/N AH - 150). This badge holder is an inflexible piece of material that can hold two forms of identification. The way these badge holders are designed is that an ID card can be inserted on either side. If you need to hold even more cards, you can link two of these two card holders onto the same lanyard and display up to four badges, or combine the rigid AH-150 holder with a zip-top holder on the same lanyard.

While the material is rigid, it is light enough to hang around your neck without any irritation. It’s layout has slot holes that accommodates for a horizontal or vertical name tag and it’s maximum insert size is 3 3/8” x 2 1/8”.
