Master Parachute Badge

The Parachutist Badge is commonly referred to as “Jump Wings.”  To receive the Parachutist Badge (jump wings), you must undergo jump training at Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia. The Parachutist Badge is awarded to members of the Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy. Often referred to as the “Snow Cone,” it is awarded to graduates of the Army Basic Airborne Course.  Once a soldier receives the Jump Wings, he/she is a trained Army Parachutist, and is qualified to participate in airborne operations.

    Your listing is incorrect. The Basic Paratrooper badge may be awarded to Navy and Marine Corp until they get to five jumps and then get their gold badge. But at no time is a Master Paratrooper badge awarded to Navy or Marines. You need to fix what you say above.

    Basic Parachutist wings or (Novice) are earned at Ft. Benning at the completion of the Jump school course of instruction and (5) jumps from an aircraft while in flight. Senior wings (the ones with the star on top of the parachute) are awarded after completion of a pre-set number of different types of jumps, (ie) Battalion mass tactical with combat equipment, Mass tactical jumps (Night), administative non-tacticial, and others as well as be a graduate of the Jump Master Course and numerous other jumps fullfilling the roll as Jumpmaster and one as primary night Jumpmaster. After all those prerequisites are met , if memory serves me you then need to just achieve a total of 65 jumps to earn the Master Prachute rating. Thats the jump wings with the star on top and the wreath around the star!
