Trainees who start basic combat training will advance to the rank of PV2 after six months of service. Once this milestone has been reached, they are allowed to wear the PV2 E2 Army multicam velcro rank. Certain individuals may be allowed to enter the Army at the rank of Private right away if they were an Eagle Scout in Boy Scouts or earned the Gold Award in Girl Scouts.
The badge displays a single chevron, and the next rank an individual will earn is private first class. This badge signifies that your main duties consist of carrying out duties given to you by the commanding officer to the best of your ability.
The PV2 badge signifies that your military journey is just beginning, and it is a symbol of great things to come. Order your badge today!
