ROCKERS - Stripes resembling a curved arch that appear as part of an enlisted rank insignia. Other stripes that are part of an enlisted rank insignia include chevrons, which are stripes that interest at an angle.
Examples:
An Army Master Sergeant has three chevrons over three rockers.
An Air Force Staff Sergeant has zero chevrons and four rockers.
A Marine Sergeant Major has three chevrons over four rockers.
Navy and Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer have one rocker over three chevrons.

yakamaniac, there is no need to be embarrassed. You did not violate the alphabetic sequence rule for postings here. And thank you for recognizing the service of us veterans. We do appreciate that.

Sorry AmericanInGTA. I think that what happened was I was looking at the rest of the pages on this topic to try not to repeat anyone else's entries and when I went to post, I looked at the letter last used on that page as opposed to this page where it actually leaves off. Thank you for pointing it out. My bad. Will be more careful with that. What's really embarrassing is that mine was the entry left off at. I must've thought that there were entries posted in the time it took me to research those other pages. Good looking out and

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!!
HUAH!
