The silver eagle of the USAF Colonel’s “full bird” rank insignia is rendered in dark blue for the subdued cloth insignia worn on several Air Force utility uniforms, each with a distinct attachment method.

From the drop-down box on the right, select “Sew-on” to choose a pair of Colonel insignias to be sewn onto the collars of the Airman Battle Uniform, or ABU.

Choose “Gortex Loop” for an insignia that slides over the rank tab of the APECS, or All-Purpose Environmental Clothing System, that is worn with the ABU, Flight Duty, and Chef White uniforms.

Pick “Fleece Rank with Hook Closure” if you need a rank insignia for wear with the Sage Green Fleece (mandatory when the Fleece is worn over the ABU blouse).
