This Driver-M qualification Bar is worn suspended from the Driver and Mechanic Badge, which was first approved in 1942. The Driver and Mechanic Badge is awarded to soldiers who have completed training and met standards which qualifies them to operate and repair military automotive machinery. The Driver-M Qualification Bar is 100% USA made with silver oxide finish, identifies a soldier with expertise in operating and maintaining military motorcycles. This badge is also available in mirror finish. For Army Personnel who specialize(d) in other machinery, we offer the Driver-T Qualification Bar (tracked vehicles), Driver-W Qualification Bar (wheeled vehicles), and Operator-S Qualification Bar (special mechanical equipment) in a variety of finishes. Each of these badges would make a great addition to a personalized shadow box display, which you can curate right here at Medals of America!
