Air Force Missile Operator Badge
The Missile Operator Badge was established in 1988 for personnel involved solely in missile operations. It was originally called the "Missile Operator Badge". The large wreath on either side of the old style badge was called the "Operations Designator". The Official name became "Missile Badge with Operations Designator".
It was awarded to officers after graduation from missile school at Vandenburg AFB and upon qualification as a missile combat crew member.
