UPDATE: Teams are now seeing their badges. Thanks to +Niantic
for listening to the community who cares so much about the game that they participate in every event however they can. And thanks for the official responses in this thread acknowledging the POC's role in organizing and crediting agents.
As stated below, if anyone still has issues, I suggest reaching out to your the city/faction POCs for the site you were involved with.

We are hearing some troubling information about a decision announced Tuesday (3 days after the anomaly) to not grant (or even revoke) Abaddon badges for remote recharge teams and related off-site support. This was supposedly said by someone from Niantic and we have confirmed agents have lost their badges they previously had - even folks who had been on ground teams in Boston but were remote recharge in Charlotte had their badges revoked!
I'd like to hear some official word on who exactly is getting their badges revoked or who no longer qualifies? This decision was made after-the-fact. Based on what we've heard - remote rechargers, operators, lane clearers, blockers, strategic fielders, shard teams, key mules and organizing leadership may all have their badges revoked or not granted if they weren't physically in one of the 4 cities on site the day of the anomaly -- IS THIS TRUE?
