Are there categories for the different insignia badges of the armed forces other than the marksmanship general category?

I looked through the military decorations category, but didn't locate anything for the individual insignia badges such as the Navy Submarine Dolphins or the Navy Surface Warfare or any of the other badges for any of the services like Air Force Wings, Army Combat Infantry Badge, Army Basic Parachute,  or any of the Wings for the Navy/Marine Corps just to name a few.  I know that there are a lot of insignia badges for all branches, but would like to maybe include some other than the marksmanship general category as these are not marksmanship qualifications.

For example: The individual listed below, while serving in the Navy qualified for the Officer version of the Surface Warfare Insignia badge and his father qualified for the Officer version of the Submarine Dolphins Insignia badge.

David,

at the present time we were not thinking about creating categories for the myriad of wings, badges, etc that are present in the various military branches that indicate the job that the person does, i.e. all pilots have one type of wing, those crazy folks that jump out of planes have a different kind, a helicopter door gunner gets another.

An exception to this that comes to mind is the US Army Combat Infantry Badge.  The Navy and Marine Corps award a Combat Action Ribbon, and the Air Force awards a Combat Action Medal to personnel that were in an active war zone, and these already exist in the decorations category.  Category: Combat Infantry Badge is in the US Army Badges category
