AMERICA - MILITARY BRANCH & RANK INSIGNIA US Space Force (47)
OK, some very quick ideas. I fully expect, though, that the actual US Space Force service dress uniforms will look nothing like this. (I also fully expect to find these drawing all over the internet purporting to be official images over the next few weeks, 'cos that's just what people are like...). My best guess is that the colour choice for service dress will come down to: black / dark navy blue / grey (dark or mid shades). Black has roots in the old USAF black uniforms, suggests Space and is clearly different to the other services at present. It could be seen as a bit severe though and there may be historical connotations they don't want to evoke. Navy Blue is well-established for the Navy, Army ASU / dress uniforms and the USMC. This may be seen as being just too similar to the other services. With silver badges and buttons it just looks a lot like USAF uniform in a darker shade! Grey is a viable alternative option that is also different to what the other services have at present. There is historical precedent with the USN grey service dress from WW2 but that hasn't been in use since 1949, seventy years ago! For a new and distinctive look, this is probably the route I would take but, inevitably, there will be comments about mail men and Greyhound bus drivers (you can't please all the people all of the time...). This is where using the US coat of arms for the cap badge helps to establish a military "look" and is immediately recognisable in a way that a new, service-specific badge perhaps would not be. That can, however, always be updated in the future... Gold or silver buttons and badges is another question. Either would work but I have opted to show these with silver, simply because I suspect that Gen. Raymond is likely to follow his Air Force heritage in regard to this. Similarly, oak leaves or USAF clouds-and-lightning (the farts-and-darts...) for senior officers' service dress caps...? Again, either would work and the best option would be something new and specific to the USSF but, for now, I have opted use the USAF-style peak decoration, as a place-holder, if nothing else. Some possible colours: ...

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....

AMERICA - MILITARY BRANCH & RANK INSIGNIA New US senior enlisted rank coming (28)
It's been fourteen years, but the Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff finally got its own rank insignia. Sergeant Major Troxell of the Army is seen here wearing it for the first time, though he's about to hand the reigns over to an Air Force chief master sergeant. https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-military/2019/12/10/theres-a-new-rank-insignia-for-the-militarys-top-enlisted-adviser/...
