MACO Sergeant Rank Insignia
Sergeant is a rank, the equivalent of which is used by the service organizations of many civilizations. As a traditional military or police grade, sergeant is the highest enlisted rank, or a series of the highest enlisted ranks, used in a service organization. Sergeants rank below commissioned officers and above Corporals. In comparison to naval ranking systems, this rank is approximately equivalent to the naval Chief Petty Officer.
In the traditional definition, lower grade sergeants command, or are responsible for squads, consisting of around a dozen troops. Some rank systems use different grades of Sergeant, such as First Sergeant, Staff Sergeant, Master Sergeant, Gunnery Sergeant, Technical Sergeant, Sergeant Major, and Sergeant of the Army.
The Sergeant insignia for MACOs was three silver chevrons.
Typically commanding a squad (9 to 10 Soldiers), Sergeants are considered to have the greatest impact on Soldiers because they oversee them in their daily tasks. In short, SGTs set an example and the standard for Privates to look and live up to.
