The “Service” badge is now active on Foursquare.
I found out about it quite by accident as I was looking for veteran-related badges this past Veterans Day.
All it took was shouting “Happy Veteran’s Day” while at a venue tagged veterans day. As a veteran, I think it’s a cool badge, but a bit too easy to get.
Since then, I’ve seen tweets and shouts from others who’ve earned it just by shouting “Happy Veterans Day” anywhere.
It didn’t work for me until I actually checked into a parade on my way back from an appointment.
Oh, one more thing – I’m a veteran of the US Marine Corps and I’d like to thank the team at @foursquare for coming up with this.
While I and my buddies never joined for the recognition, I’d be lying if I said it didn’t feel good to be thanked.
So, Foursquare, I say thank you.
