Milwaukie, OR (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Military uniform superstore, USA Military Medals, introduced more than 2,200 Army Distinctive Unit Insignia to their product offering, here, today, putting their total inventory at upwards of 12,000 unique military uniform products.
Distinctive Unit Insignia – commonly referred to by Soldiers as “unit crests,” are medal badges worn by US Army Soldiers denoting their specific unit of assignment. Derived from the unit’s coat of arms, the U.S. Army Institute of Heraldry designs, develops, and authorizes the manufacturing of all Distinctive Unit Insignia.
"It's an incredibly complicated project to carry a product like the U.S. Army's unit crests,” said Jared Zabaldo, USA Military Medals, president of business operations.
“You're literally talking about more than 2,200 unique units with their own insignia - not to mention unique slogans that go along with each one that can be relevant in searching for those items. I don’t know of any other company that carries every last unit crest,” said Zabaldo.
The Distinctive Unit Insignia are currently available on usamilitarymedals.com and at their brick and mortar location in Milwaukie. These insignia used to be worn by enlisted personnel on their berets before the Army stopped using berets for most Soldiers. Distinctive Unit Insignia are still currently worn on the Army Service Uniform by most Soldiers (various exceptions), though, making them a highly relevant product to nearly all Army personnel.
UMM carries every Distinctive Unit Insignia in stock, shipping within one business day. With overnight shipping options, Soldiers can receive their new unit crest the very next day.
"We're literally the preeminent uniform superstore in America now for the U.S. armed forces,” said Zabaldo. “But we're not done yet. There's plenty more we want to make available to Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen, and Coast Guard personnel."
