The Combat Infantryman Badge (C.I.B.) is awarded to individuals, not to units. The criteria for this award is that the person must have served 60days or more in combat with a MOS (Military Occupation Specialty) designated as infantry. It has been awarded from WW@ till present. If you see this medal on a person's uniform, respect him/her.
The badge is a blue rectangle with a musket inset and surrounded by a laurel leaf.
The information above is incorrect. The C.I.B is awarded only to Infantrymen and SF that have met the requirements. Women are not allowed in the Infantry and cannot receive a C.I.B. and never have been able to. Only individuals with the 11B (Infantry) and Special Forces MOS can receive the C.I.B.
Also, the criteria to receive the C.I.B has become much stricter since Desert Storm and is no longer "blanket awarded" like it was in Desert Storm. No disrespect to Desert Storm veterans. Hooah!
