An oxidized silver badge 1 13/64 inches in height and 1 1/2 inches in width, consisting of an open parachute on and over a pair of stylized wings displayed and curving inward.  A star and wreath are added above the parachute canopy to indicate the degree of qualification. A star above the canopy indicates a Senior Parachutist; the star surrounded by a laurel wreath indicates a Master Parachutist.

 

The wings suggest flight and, together with the open parachute, symbolize individual proficiency and parachute qualifications.

 

The Parachutist Badge was formally approved on 10 March 1941. The senior and master parachutists were authorized by HQDA in 1949 and were announced by C-4, AR 600-70, dated 24 January 1950.
