Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The United States Air Force does not have a First Sergeant rank. It is instead a duty denoted by a diamond within the upper field. They usually act in the capacity of as a pulse of the morale and welfare of the unit to the Commander. The Chief Master Sergeant of the unit is the Senior Enlisted Advisor to the unit commander.
  • Only one individual was awarded the rank of General of the Air Force, semi-retroactively. General of the Army "Hap" Arnold was awarded the rank in 1949, two years after the establishment of the United States Air Force as a separate body from the United States Army. General Arnold was considered inactive at this time [although not retired, as five-star generals do not officially retire from service], so this rank has never been awarded to an officer of the modern USAF while on active duty.

NOTE: "Infantry Weapons Officer" is not a military rank or title in any of the US uniformed services, including the USMC. Rather it is the name of a USMC Military Occupational Specialty (MOS). Although it carries with it the title of "Marine Gunner" (the usually form of address being "Gunner") this is merely a title and not a rank. However, Marine Gunners wear a special "bursting bomb" insignia (depicted above) in place of their actual rank insignia unless a coat is worn, in which case a larger "Bursting Bomb" insignia is worn ¾" above the rank insignia on both shoulder epaulets.
