USAF Subdued Chevrons

Recommended Posts

I like how the Air Force is the only one who still wears chevrons on the sleeves of utility uniforms. :thumbsup:

We did get away from it for a little while, those of us in SOS units wore just the leather name tag after we became AFSOC we continued to just wear the leather name tag. Then the whole AF went to leather name tags, then added stripes back to the BDU's, then back to name and USAF tapes and stripes. I loved the leather name tag only version.

I agree. No confusing who is an officer and who is enlisted. It just plain looks better IMHO. :thumbsup:
