    Should just get rid of the EIB and EFMB instead.

    Probably. Few things were more contentious during the Gulf War than the rules for the CIB and the CMB (the latter were stricter than those for the CIB). We ended up with infantry replacements who worked in the field ration break point in Saudi Arabia, who never crossed the berm into Iraq, getting CIBs because they were assigned to one of our ground brigades. The CMB applied to medics in the maneuver battalions, but not to those medics in the forward support medical companies who either operated ambulances to and from those battalion aid stations or were attached to them to flesh them out. Adding more badges just brings to mind The Treasure of the Sierra Madre–„Badges? We don’t need no stinkin‘ badges.“
