Standing as the seventh rank in the U.S. Army, a staff sergeant fulfills many leadership responsibilities. For individuals holding this rank, the SSG E6 Army ACU Velcro Rank by Action Embroidery is an ideal means of identification, providing easy integration with your Army Combat Uniform.
A staff sergeant is frequently promoted from the rank of sergeant, although exceptions are made for lower-ranked personnel who display sufficient leadership and field experience. Soldiers may also be promoted in order to serve in HQ support positions, usually referred to as staff non-commissioned officers. Staff sergeants will usually command a squad of 9-10 soldiers, although in rare cases they can be placed in command of larger units. Such platoons may be made up of several squads, and can be anywhere from 16 to 50 soldiers in total size.
