The IDF unveiled a new line of ranks and badges to their combat soldiers’ collection of military accessories.  According to the IDF, the move is designed to help improve the morale and performance of soldiers who are the first to go into battle.

The new line of military “bling” is exclusive to combat soldiers – whether serving on land, in the air or at sea – include a newly designed pin decorated with the traditional sword and olive leaf in front of an olive green rectangular background.

The combat soldiers will also be granted a new embroidered rank to display on the forearm of their uniforms. The pin and rank will be awarded to soldiers who have completed at least 12 months of combat service and the first ceremony in which they will be granted by their unit commanders, is scheduled for the near future.
