AMERICA - MILITARY BRANCH & RANK INSIGNIA US Space Force (46)
Yes, I wondered about that too. I suspect, however, that the memory of the McPeak sleeve insignia will live long in the memory of USAF officers (and not in a good way...!) so I have a feeling that there will be a cultural drive to stay away from silver sleeve lace. I think it’ll be a long time before we see naval-type sleeve insignia for anything other than naval-type ranks in the US. It’s a shame really as something like the four-pocket Coast Guard service dress uniform but in dark grey with silver stripes would actually work pretty well and would certainly give USSF a clear visual identity as a new service — but I just don’t see it happening. I think it all hinges on how much Gen. Raymond is influenced by his Air Force heritage versus how much he wants to strike out and establish something new. My betting is that we’ll see a more “military”-looking service dress than the current Air Force service dress. In other words, a “proper” four button / four pocket tunic rather than the the current USAF uniform that still looks like a three-button civilian business suit with shoulder straps. Black, dark navy blue and grey are all in the running as potential uniform colors. I don’t know if it’s a clue that they used navy blue for the name tapes on the camouflage utility uniform that was posted online or whether that’s just an initial temporary place-holder while they get everything sorted....

AMERICA - MILITARY BRANCH & RANK INSIGNIA Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs (0)
In the last week, two new appointment rank insignia have been unveiled. One for the Army command sergeant major, who was outgoing Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and a second, introduced just today, for the USAF command chief master sergeant who is the incoming SEAC. Army insignia: https://www.stripes.com/polopoly_fs/1.610596.1575997813!/image/image.JPG_gen/derivatives/landscape_900/image.JPG Air Force insignia: https://media.defense.gov/2019/Dec/13/2002224495/-1/-1/0/191210-A-UG256-001.JPG Both use the Department of Defense eagle, surrounded by four stars as the central emblem. The USMC SEAC insignia has been resourced to be developed before the end of the current fiscal year. A Navy insignia will follow at a date undetermined, probably when a Navy SEAC is appointed....
