United States Air Force Commander's Insignia Badge
The Air Force Commander's Insignia is an insignia that has been in existence since 2002, and is awarded to any Air Force officer who holds a major command billet within the United States Air Force. To be eligible for the Air Force Commander's Insignia, an officer must hold permanent assignment in a command billet, normally in the rank of Major or above. Examples of these would include any unit larger than detachment size, including: Squadron, Group, and Wing Commanders, as well as the Commanding officers of major Air Force installations such as Air Force bases. Commanders of Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Detachments are also authorized to wear the Air Force Commander's Badge.
The Air Force Commander's Insignia is worn above the name tag when in command of a squadron, group, wing, numbered air force (NAF), major command (MAJCOM), or Unified Command. The insignia is worn below the nametag upon completion of the command assignment.
