TSA Military Ranks

TSA military ranks are split into non-commissioned and commissioned officers, then each category is further split up. Commissioned Officers are technically above all non-commissioned ones, however smart commissioned officers below senior level will listen to senior level non-commissioned ones.

Non-Commissioned officers (or ‘non-coms’/NCO): is an enlisted military member holding a position of some degree of authority who has (usually) obtained promotion without having attended officers training. They are split into ‘staff’ and ‘Junior’ classes. NCO status is denoted by a square pip on the persons collar.
