1st Sergeant Warden is actually wearing the correct stripes. Modern 1st Sergeant stripes have a three up-three down configuration. However, from 1920 to 1942, 1st Sergeants had three chevrons and only two rockers, along with the center diamond. The modern version with three rockers was adopted in 1942, after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
