I believe your data is incorrect, as I've seen all three colors used at various times on each comomn flight line I've worked on. As an example, my current badge is a light blue, but the one I had before that was yellow, at an overseas base. Before that, at another stateside base, we had pink, then had to change to yellow. I was told this was because a certain number of the old color had been lost, and we had to change colors so the lost ones couldn't be used illegally. > Also, Air Force security > badges often have numbers on the bottom that define what parts of a base a > particular individual is allowed in.

(okay, we > don't know the base's real name, but "Air Force Times" refers to it as Groom > Lake AFB.) These numbers actually follow a hard pattern. for instance, area 4 is the flight line, area 15 is the bomb dump, area 10 is a temporary mobility area, and I think area 5 is the command post.
