In the U.S. Air Force, the second commissioned officer rank is that of first lieutenant. The 1LT 1st Lieutenant O2 ABU Sew On Rank by Action Embroidery is made to be worn by those who have earned this designation, featuring high-quality craftsmanship you can trust from a producer of U.S. military insignia for over 70 years.
A first lieutenant wears a very similar emblem to that of the second lieutenant, with the exception of the silver coloration as opposed to a gold bar. This rank can serve in many different capacities, from flight commander to section officer. Although the leadership requirements of a first lieutenant are not particularly demanding, all higher-ranked personnel are subject to the same obligation to maintain high standards of personal appearance. Make sure your uniform is ready for the day with this sew-on emblem.
Action Embroidery has remained at the forefront of U.S. military insignia production since the days of World War II. Their commitment to quality is evident, and all emblems are reviewed by the Institute of Heraldry before mass production begins to ensure compliance with government standards. With all manufacturing performed stateside, you can trust the quality of your Action Embroidery product.
