This pair of US Army Sergeant Major pins comes in a non-tarnish, 22k gold-plated finish. This pin is 100% USA made with a double pin clutch backing. Army Sergeant, an E-5, leads soldiers directly and leads teams and sections. This Sergeant Major insignia, sold as a pair, displays 3 chevrons above 3 arcs with a five pointed star in the center. E-5 is the first at which enlisted soldiers are referred to as sergeant, and of all the grades of the NCO, this one, very possibly, has the greatest impact on the lower ranking soldiers.
