Choose a tie tack or tie clasp to show your pride of service as a United States Air Force Staff Sergeant! Unlike lower Enlisted grades, promotions to E-5 Staff Sergeant are not based on time in service/grade, but instead are competitive and are based on achievement and record. While higher NCO ranks may have more responsibilities, Staff Sergeants are tasked with the day-in, day-out job of making sure the enlisted personnel under their charge stay on course to one day develop into leaders themselves.

Tie tasks and clasps may be worn with all uniforms for which the necktie (regular or pre-tied) is required or permitted and are centered between the bottom tip and the bottom of the knot. Tacks and clasps with rank insignia are also permissible for wear with civilian business attire—the only items aside from lapel pins for which such an exception is made.
