MILITARY RANKS

The United States Air Force utilizes some of the most sophisticated equipment on the planet.

NOTES: Formally, USAF rank abbreviations (Abbrv) are not displayed with an ending period. Additionally, the USAF does not maintain a 'First Sergeant' rank common to other branches of American military service. Instead, the rank is denoted by the special addition of a 'diamond' within the insignia and observed as a duty / job title. Similarly, the diamond is replaced by a 'star' for the Chief Master Sergeant and Command Chief Master Sergeant ranks. Finally, the Five Star rank is generally reserved for wartime but is also bestowed as an honorary rank in some cases.
