Many federal employees in the Army don’t know about the Army Civilian Service Lapel Pin. Army civilians can earn their first pin after 12 months of federal service. The bronze civilian service pin is earned after the employee’s first year of service with the Department of the Army. The silver recognition pin, also known as the “Army Time-Honored Civilian Service Recognition,” is awarded to Army Civilians with 10 or more years of cumulative Army service. Finally, the gold pin is bestowed on any Army Civilian upon retiring from a successful Army career. The establishment of Army Civilian service recognition creates opportunities for displaying and acknowledging the dedicated service of the Department of the Army Civilian workforce and its significance to furthering the Army mission. Creating a culture of employee recognition drives employee engagement, improves performance, and bolsters retention. These pins are different from the service awards earned every five and ten years. For more information about the pins refer to Chapter 21 in Army Regulation 672-20 “Incentive Awards.” (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District photo by Michel Sauret)
