Sometimes, a Toy Soldier will go above and beyond the call of duty. Be it through unique and original propaganda of the epic variety, putting themselves in precarious positions for the army, or aided the army or their fellow soldiers in a fashion which has earned them the respect of those around them.
When they have done this, the Administrator of the Army of Toy Soldiers, awards the Yellow Jacket patch as a symbol of appreciation for their efforts. From that point onward that Toy Soldier has earned the honor and right to call themselves a Yellow Jacket.
