USAF Brigadier General Rank
Air Force Brigadier Generals wear a five-pointed silver star on their uniform to signify their rank. Brigadier General is the 23rd rank in the Air Force, ranking above Colonel and below Major General.
In the Air Force, unlike the Army, a Brigadier General is a permanent rank and members in the Brigadier General position must retire after five years and/or racking 30 years in the service.
