The silver oak leaf of the USAF Lieutenant Colonel insignia is rendered as dark blue for the subdued cloth rank insignia that Air Force regulations require for the APECS (all-weather ensemble for outdoor wear only), the Sage Green Fleece uniform, and the Airman Battle Uniform. The oak leaf is rendered on a solid background for wear on these utility uniforms, each of which utilizes a different attachment system. Use these guidelines for choosing the appropriate selection in the drop-down box to the right:
Sew-on: Worn on the collars of the Airman Battle Uniform. Sold in pairs.

Gortex Loop: Designed to fit over the rank tab of the parka in the APECs, or All-Purpose Environmental Clothing System.

Fleece Rank with Hook Closure: Square-shaped insignia with Velcro backing for easy attachment to the front of the Sage Green Fleece. Center over the name tape on the wearer’s right chest.
