We offer the subdued First Sergeant (E-8) rank insignia in a variety of formats to accommodate the different types of garments upon which it might be worn, so please verify your selections in the "Style" and "Pattern" drop-down boxes to the right.

Choose “Rank with Velcro” for First Sergeant rank insignia with hook-and-loop fastener (Velcro) backing; these are worn on Velcro face pads on various Utility uniforms such as the Army Combat Uniform, the A2CU (Army Aircrew Combat Uniform), and others.

“Cap Rank” features the First Sergeant insignia embroidered onto a piece of camouflage-patterned cloth that is sewn directly onto the Patrol Cap and other headgear. Note: You will bear the cost of having this insignia sewn onto the Patrol Cap, but the Army must pay for any sewing expenses associated with attaching it to the camouflage cover of the helmet.

Select “Gortex” for a First Sergeant rank insignia designed with an opening at the bottom that allows it to be slid over the front tab of the Gore-Tex parka, officially designated the Extended Cold Weather Clothing System (ECWCS) jacket.

Pattern lets you choose the insignia's camouflage pattern so it matches your uniform. Introduced in July 2015, Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP) is the current camouflage pattern used for the Army Combat Uniform (ACU), the Army Aircrew Combat Uniform (A2CU), and other uniforms. Uniforms and accouterments manufactured in the Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP) were authorized for wear from 2004 until 30 September 2019.
