Serving as a senior non-commissioned officer, a master sergeant is a rank in the U.S. Army which demands high standards of leadership and communication. The MSG E8 Army ACU Velcro Rank by Action Embroidery is made to be worn by those who have achieved this rank, and features a Velcro-style hook fastener for quick and easy application.
Typically promoted from sergeant first class, a master sergeant may also be awarded such a rank for the display of exceptional leadership and experience in the field. An MSG is the principal non-commissioned officer at the battalion level, and frequently will specialize in one particular field. While not charged with the same level of personnel responsibility as a first sergeant, an MSG is expected to provide leadership and fulfill duties with the same degree of professionalism as those holding the next highest rank.
In the business since 1943, Action Embroidery has been supplying the United States Armed Forces with shoulder sleeve insignia for generations. They remain one of the largest such producers, seeking approval for all designs by the Institute of Heraldry, the branch of the Army responsible for overseeing insignia. All manufacturing is performed in the U.S. to ensure the highest standards of production.
