A first sergeant at the E-8 grade in the U.S. Air Force bears a distinction which is both respected and specialized. Although not considered a rank in the traditional sense, those in this position are still expected to maintain standardized appearance. The MSGT with DIA Master Sergeant with DIA E8 Large ABU Sew On Rank by Action Embroidery features a traditionally-styled application method and high-quality craftsmanship that will complement your battle uniform.
The insignia worn by a first sergeant is quite similar to the emblem of a master sergeant, save for the diamond-shaped lozenge depicted in the upper portion of the design. A first sergeant is charged with supervision of squadron personnel and is responsible for their conduct and morale, among other support duties. Precise attention to personal presentation is highly valued in a position of such authority.
