Army Sew On Rank COL O6 (Scorpion OCP) from Action Embroidery
With a pay grade of 0-6, full colonel is the highest field-grade officer rank in the United States Army. The Army Scorpion OCP Sew On Rank COL 06 depicts the silver eagle insignia worn by full colonels, which is itself a version of the eagle on the Great Seal of the United States of America. The eagle insignia has a rich history and its design is highly symbolic. In one talon the eagle holds an olive branch, the traditional symbol of peace, while in the other talon it grasps arrows to indicate the willingness to use force when necessary. The eagle’s head is turned toward the olive branch to advocate peace before war.
The COL 06 Army Scorpion OCP sew on rank is manufactured by longtime Department of Defense (DOD) contractor Action Embroidery, and is made specifically for display on the Scorpion OCP uniform worn by US Army personnel in some current theaters of operations, including Afghanistan. The insignia has the approval of the Institute of Heraldry at the Pentagon, the office that oversees insignia and emblems worn by US military members.
