“Medals of America is proud to release, ‘United States Army Medals, Badges and Insignia,’ our book dedicated to the past 200 plus years of symbols, professional skill and valor of the Army,” said Col. Frank C. Foster (Ret.). “It is important to honor and acknowledge the 28 million America citizens who have severed in the Army, by providing the background and criteria of each Army medal and badge. We wanted to tell the story of these awarded honors, as a thank you to the past and present soldiers through this informative book.”
Colonel Frank C. Foster grew up in Greenville, South Carolina. He saw service as a Batter Commander in Germany and served in Vietnam with the 173rd Airborne Brigade and USARV General Staff. In the Adjutant General’s Corps, Frank served as the Adjutant General of the Central Army Group, the 4th Infantry Division and was the Commandant and Chief of the Army’s Adjutant General’s Corps from 1986 to 1990 during which time he activated the Adjutant General Corps Regiment. His military service provided him a unique understanding of the Armed Forces Awards System. Now, Frank operates the Medals of America press and is the co-author of other recognized books, including “Military Medals of the United States” and “The Decorations and Medals of the Republic of Vietnam.”
There have been 28 million American citizens who have served in the United States armed forces since World War II, and the majority of which served in the United States Army. After Col. Frank Foster’s retirement from the Army, he wanted a way to express his appreciation to the men and women who unselfishly served our Army for the past 235 years, and writing “United States Army Medals, Badges and Insignia,” was his way. The book tells the story of the honors they won, the skills they developed and the military symbols they served under. This book is not just for veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, Kosovo, the Liberation of Iraq, Afghanistan and dozens of other skirmishes, but also for veterans’ families, as the families can find the book as a resource to understand and gain an appreciation for the dedication, and skills that go into earning these awards.
