When Biden spoke to American troops in England, some eagle-eyed observers noticed something very strange.
None of these troops appeared to have name tags.
They didn’t have ranks or even American flags on their sleeves.
This led many to question: is this even a legitimate audience?

Or is it a friendly audience of “plants” or actors to make Biden look good?
Take a look at some of the objections that observers have pointed out:
Take a look at the following clip.
You’ll notice that no one has rank or name tags.
TikTok star @hero.of.none did an excellent analysis:
Even the mainstream media video shows that these items were missing.
This is proof that social media users did not manipulate the video:
Now, the uniforms are not meant to be blank.
In fact, the uniforms are supposed to easily identify the soldier.
Through name and rank.
Military One Source explains how insignia on uniforms works:
The stripes and bars on a military uniform signify rank. If you’re new to the military, you know enough to understand that rank matters.
While it may take time to figure out what everything means, a working knowledge out of the gate can help you feel more at home in the military.A quick vocabulary lesson.
Here are some terms you’ll need to know:
Rank: Think of rank as the military’s organizational structure. The higher the rank, the more responsibility.
Insignia: Insignia on service members’ uniforms denote rank and include various emblems including chevrons, bars, oak leaves or stars. These are typically worn on the shoulder or collar of a service member’s uniform.
Pay grade: These are administrative classifications designed to equalize pay across the military service branches. Each pay grade is represented by a letter and a number. For instance, an officer at the first pay grade level would be referred to as an O-1.
Who Wears What and Why
Here’s a breakdown of the insignia:
Chevrons: Most enlisted personnel in every military service branch wear chevrons, or v-shaped stripes.
Bars: These are worn by officers in the lower pay grades. Officers at the O-1 pay grade wear one gold bar, O-2 wear one silver bar, O-3 wear two silver bars and warrant officers wear striped bars.
Oak leaves: Officers at the O-4 pay grade wear a gold oak leaf and officers at the O-5 pay grade wear a silver oak leaf.
Eagles: Officers at the O-6 pay grade wear a silver eagle.
Stars: Officers at the O-7 through O-10 pay grades wear one, two, three or four stars, respectively.
To see what these insignia look like for each rank in your service branch and to learn the names of each rank, go to the Department of Defense’s display of officer and enlisted insignia.
Again, if you look at all of the videos, the uniforms appear to have none of this insignia.
We probably have some doubters.
Would Biden really attempt to fool us?
