Sometimes called “full-bird colonels” in reference to their eagle insignia, colonels in the U.S. Air Force fulfill many crucial roles. The COL Colonel O6 ABU Sew On Rank by Action Embroidery is made to be worn by those who have attained this distinction, offering traditional sew-on style application and the high quality production standards of one of the U.S. military’s largest suppliers of shoulder sleeve insignia.
The rank of colonel is the third and final field officer designation in the Air Force, and those holding the position are typically charged with commanding a wing between 1,000 and 3,000 airmen in size. A colonel may also be asked to serve as head of staff in a Numbered Air Force-level agency, underscoring the need to maintain high standards of conduct and presentation. Make sure your uniform is up to the task.
Action Embroidery has served as one of the primary producers of U.S. military insignia dating back to 1943. Their emblems are reviewed for approval by the Institute of Heraldry to ensure compliance with all government requirements and regulations, and all manufacturing is performed stateside for the quality craftsmanship your uniform deserves.
