Nonsubdued pin-on metal insignia is worn by Lieutenant Colonels primarily on the shoulder loops of black all-weather coat and the black windbreaker. Although it technically can be worn on the sleeves of the Blue Mess and White Mess dress jackets, most Lieutenant Colonels opt for embroidered or embroidered bullion versions of the silver oak leaf insignia because it fits in more uniformly with the embroidered ornamentation on the sleeves of those jackets.

Nonsubdued pin-on metal LTC insignia are also authorized for wear on the black beret and the colored berets (Maroon, Tan, Green) that are issued to personnel in Airborne, Ranger, or Special Forces units. You can learn more about pin-on beret rank insignia for LTCs on this page.
