U.S. Air Force pilots wear cloth name tags on their flight suit uniforms that often feature several distinctive marks. In this photo illustration – the name has been altered for security purposes – a patch of a pilot from the 171st Air Refueling Squadron is seen. The squadron’s colors are seen in the patch, yellow and black. The checkerboard stripe has been utilized by the squadron as a marking since the early 1970s. This individual is rated as a senior pilot, which is indicated by the star located above the wings. (Air National Guard photo by Brittani Baisden)
