I've been noting a differences in USAF Chevrons since I was in a long time ago (62 - 69). Back in my day there was up to 6 rockers down (A3C - MSGT) then one and two up (CMSGT & SMSGT). When and what changed???? Just an Old Testicle Sgt wondering.

Well, you know what they say "sometimes things change". I was USAF 64-68 and I know the chevrons you are talking about. My son is about to retire from USAF, 22 yrs, Msgt. The chevron change was made before he enlisted. I don't know why the change. Thanks for your service!!!

I am USAF retired (SMSgt).  they changed the chevrons about 4-5 years ago.  Three on top, CMSgt, two on top, SMSgt, one on tor, MSgt.  I enlisted in 1965, so I am familiar with the chevrons you mentioned.

They actually changed in 1996-1997.  I retired as a SMSgt in 1990 and still have a hard time figuring the new ones out.
