USAF Enlisted PsyOps (E-1) to (E-9)

Unread postby Chuck Anderson » Thu Oct 22, 2009 10:40 pm

Hi Everyone!

Presented here are my illustrations of the rank/specialty insignia for USAF enlisted personnel (E-1 to E-9), in the career field of Psychological Warfare Operations Specialist,
AFSC 1N6X1A. (Rank/specialty insignia are permanently placed on rectangular patches, and are worn on both arms, mid-sleeve between shoulder and elbow.)

The specialty insignia is derived from that of the U.S. Army's Psychological Operations branch, (PSYOP).

Many USAF PSYOPS personnel are stationed with the U.S. Special Operations Command.

The purpose of PSYOPS (psychological operations) is to demoralise enemy forces by causing unrest and dissension among their ranks, and provide continuous analysis of the attitudes and behaviour of enemy forces to the tactical commanders in the field, so they can develop, produce and employ propaganda in a successful manner.

As well as supporting commanders, PSYOPS provide support to other U.S. Government agencies, in operations ranging from humanitarian assistance to drug interdiction.

USAF PSYOPS personnel work alongside personnel from other specialties such as Intelligence, Civil Affairs and even military Journalists.
