The Air Force ABU & OCP uniforms are often adorned with patches and badges, such as Senior Occupational Badges, earned over the course of an individual's Air Force career. Made by Action Embroidery, the largest manufacturer of US Armed Forces embroidered insignia, Senior badges are easy to identify by the star positioned above the badge. There are three levels to most Air Force occupations: Basic, Senior, and Master. Senior level is earned by meeting specific occupation requirements and serving for a designated number of years in a position, usually after achieving the 7-skill level. The Basic patch can be worn until Senior status is earned. While the actual occupational or skill insignia may differ, the star on top is what sets it apart from a Basic level.
