SEAC Troxell announces new rank insignia

WASHINGTON–Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Command Sgt. Maj. John Wayne Troxell announced today during a Pentagon press briefing that a unique insignia has been created for the position.

The Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman (SEAC) serves as the principal advisor to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on matters pertaining to the enlisted joint force. The unique insignia serves to differentiate the position, its duties and responsibilities.

Troxell, the third senior enlisted advisor to the chairman, and Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Ramon Colon-Lopez, the incoming and fourth senior enlisted advisor to the chairman, will be the first to wear the new insignia.

“This historic step gives this position irreversible momentum,” Troxell said.

The unique designs were developed by the Institute of Heraldry with inputs from all the services.  The U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force designs were given priority in advance of the change of responsibility ceremony for the senior enlisted advisor to the chairman, Dec. 13.
