    Question USAF Fire Protection Badge

    A question for the Air Force firefighers. I have my father's Air Force Fire Protection badge which I would like to get mounted into a shadow box with the matching patch and a picture of him in his silver suit. My question: Is the badge supposed to be silver (polished) or a subdued color. For as many years as I can remember and as long as I have had it, it has been a subdued color, not silver. Thanks for your assistance.

    Sometime in the mid 1990's the USAF changed their uniforms and badges. Up to that date, USAF Fire Protection wore a satin finish badge. After the change, they became "highly polished" or chrome finished. Either badge is correct depending on when he served.

    The fire protection patch changed from full color to subdued colors in the late 1970's.
