Army Sew On Rank 1LT O2 (Army ACU) from Action Embroidery
The Army ACU Sew On Rank 1LT O2 is awarded to those who have earned the rank of First Lieutenant in the United States Army. It is the second junior commissioned officer rank after second lieutenant, and it is typically awarded as an automatic advancement to second lieutenants who have served for 18 to 24 months. Ultimately, promotion is decided by the Department of Defense policies from the Defense Officer Personnel Management Act of 1980. The difference between the two ranks is minimal, but first lieutenants are generally more experienced, and as a result, the position comes with higher pay.
The 1LT O2 Army ACU sew on rank insignia consists of a single bar. First lieutenants typically serve as the platoon leader of a specialized weapons platoon or as the executive officer of a company composed of 70 to 250 soldiers. Some officers who achieve the rank of first lieutenant may receive an additional promotion to higher ranks with more leadership responsibilities. Although most second lieutenants are promoted to first lieutenants, someone from a lower paygrade could be promoted to the ranking based on sufficient leadership and experience.
