Rank insignia perform the crucial task of showing each soldier’s place in a unit and quickly establishing the chain of command for all members. The Army Multicam Sew On Rank LTC 05 depicts the silver oak leaf that has been worn by lieutenant colonels in the United States Army during peacetime and wartime since before the outbreak of US Civil War. Men and women who display the silver oak leaf serve the army in a number of ways, including as staff officers in charge of activities related to intelligence, operations, and logistics. A lieutenant colonel may also be the executive officer of a brigade or regiment.
Made by Action Embroidery, an official supplier to the United States Department of Defense (DOD) since the Second World War, the Army Multicam Sew On Rank LTC 05 rank insignia has been inspected by the Institute of Heraldry at the US Pentagon to ensure it conforms to the US Army’s standards for displaying rank in uniform.
The rank of lieutenant colonel is earned through demonstrated leadership and a commitment to the Army in its defense of the citizens of the United States. It commands respect and should be worn with pride.
