SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND RANKS
Since the inception of Special Operations Command, we recruit freely from any extant branch or division. Because of this, we recognize all titles of rank currently in use in MFI, but our insignia is standardized as the "blue" SOC designs. The rank insignia is listed elsewhere, and will not be repeated here. Personnel listed as public members - that is, SOC is their primary branch, or they are otherwise openly known as SOC members - have the option of wearing the blue insignia, but are known by the rank nomenclature of whatever branch they originated in. Hidden members should wear the rank insignia of whatever primary branch they belong to.
