U.S. Marines: Master Sergeant (USMC MSgt) [3D]
Introducing project “Military Insignia 3D”, featuring top quality military heraldry designs. Here you will find customizable apparel, accessories, custom postage and gifts decorated with rank insignia of a U.S. Marine Master Sergeant (USMC MSgt). Gunnery Sergeant (GySgt) is the eighth enlisted rank in the U.S. Marine Corps, just above gunnery sergeant, below master gunnery sergeant, sergeant major, and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps. It is equal in grade to first sergeant. It is abbreviated as MSgt. In the U.S. Marine Corps, master sergeants provide technical leadership as occupational specialists at the E-8 level. Most infantry Master Sergeants serve as the Operations Chief of a weapons company, in place of the Gunnery Sergeant found in the company headquarters of a rifle company. Infantry MSgts also serve as the Assistant Operations Chief in the S-3 section of the headquarters of an infantry regiment and Marine Expeditionary Unit and in the G-3 section of the headquarters of a Marine Expeditionary Brigade. The Marine division and Marine Expeditionary Force headquarters contains two infantry MSgts, one as the Training NCO and the other as the Readiness Chief. While some combat support battalions have MSgts at the company level (e.g., one as the Tank Leader, again replacing the company Gunnery Sergeant, in the Operations Section of the tank company headquarters, and two in the company headquarters of an assault amphibian company, one MSgt as the Company Gunnery Sergeant in the headquarters section and the other as the Section Leader of the company headquarters AMTRAC Section), most non-infantry MSgts serve as section chief/NCOIC of their MOS type staff section in a battalion or higher level headquarters. General command leadership at this paygrade is provided by the separate rank of first sergeant.
