The Army Warrant Officer insignia, worn on each point of the uniform collar, displays the National eagle standing on two arrows surrounded by a wreath, an ode to the great seal of the United States. The insignia was approved for warrant officers on 12 May 1921 and removed 9 July 2004. A warrant officer is an officer appointed by the Secretary of the Army, based on technical and tactical competence. They are highly specialized experts who operate, maintain, administer and manage the Army’s equipment, support activities or technical systems for an entire career. The Army Warrant Officer Insignia is 100% USA made, sold as a pair, and comes with a double pin clutch back.
