National Guard Lapel Pins Honor New Recruits

The National Guard is the oldest component of the Armed Forces of the United States and one of the nation’s longest-enduring institutions.  It celebrated its 370th birthday on December 13, 2006.  It traces its history back to the earliest English colonies in North America.

Tens of thousands of members of the Guard have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.  The National Guard continues its historic dual mission.  Each state receives units that are trained, equipped, and ready to defend the United States, its people, and interests all over the world.

What is the National Guard’s Mission Statement? Wear your lapel pin with honor.  We were happy to be able to assist the National Guard Association of Florida with their lapel pin request.  We did so by creating pins according to their specifications.  The round pin features the National Guard symbol as well as an image of the state of Florida.

One of the suggestions that we make is to give a lapel pin to new recruits.  This is a great way to make them feel welcome and acquaint them with the National Guard as a whole.  Lapel pins can also be attached to a piece of custom cardstock which relays the history of the Guard.  This helps extend the message and make the pins have even more personal significance and sentimental value.

If you have a group of new recruits or members that you want to honor, let custom lapel pins be the gift that you give to them.  Smart, attractive, and versatile, they are the type of item people hang onto for years.  Visit today to see the different styles of pins that we offer.  You can also inquire about a free quote by calling 1-800-480-6822 or emailing
