The following is a list of awards and badges that may be obtained throughout your service with the BLHA in order of precedence . No award or insignia is authorized unless it has been awarded by the BLHA. The only exception to this policy is in regards to awards issued by the Department of Defense. These will be handled on a case by case basis but proof must be presented of those awards. If an actual service-connected award is submitted, it must fall into awards in existence before 1946. If the submitted award did not exist during WW2, the CO will try to find a suitable substitute.
