1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. CHAPTER 9 UNIFORMS, INSIGNIA, AND AWARDS LEARNING  OBJECTIVES Upon  completion  of  this  chapter,  you  should  be  able  to  do  the  following: Identify the differences between flag officers, 8. line  officers,  and  staff  corps  officers. Identify the uniforms and corps devices worn 9. by  naval  officers. Identify  the  different  types  of  aiguillettes  and those  personnel  authorized  to  wear  them. Describe  the  use  of  mourning  badges. 11. Identify  midshipmen’s  and  officer  candidate’s uniform   markings. Describe  the  differences  between  rates  and ratings  for  enlisted  personnel. Identify the various breast insignia worn by naval  personnel. Define the terms associated with naval medals and  awards. Determine  the  order  of  precedence  for wearing various naval medals and awards and the  manner  in  which  they  are  worn. Describe various uniform modifications that may   be   authorized   by   your   prescribing authority. Identify  the  Navy’s  facility  for  ordering uniforms  through  the  mail. SIGNIFICANT   DATES 5  Sep.  1776  Navy  adopts  its  first  uniform. 1  Jul.  1933  Navy  Clothing  Depot,  Brooklyn, N.Y.,   established. Every naval officer should be an authority on the grades, ratings, and insignia of the Navy. An officer  should  also  be  able  to  recognize  and know the meaning of the insignia worn by other branches  of  the  armed  forces. Because  Navy  ways  might  be  new  to  you, many  questions  probably  have  crossed  your  mind. For  example,  at  times  you  may  have  thought, What  is  that  officer’s  rank?  What  does  that petty  officer’s  insignia  mean?  What  does  that collar  device  stand  for? This chapter describes the types of uniforms and  corps/grade  devices  of  naval  officers  and midshipmen.  It  also  describes  the  uniforms,  rating insignia,  and  distinguishing  marks  of  enlisted personnel in the Navy. Included are comparisons of  rank,  rate,  and  grade  insignia  of  all  service members. OFFICER PERSONNEL As  in  other  branches  of  the  armed  services, officers  of  the  Navy  have  precedence  according to  their  grade.  Within  their  grade,  officers  have precedence  according  to  their  date  of  appointment to  that  grade.  Officers  are  junior  to  those  with a higher grade. Within grades, officers are junior to those with an appointment date prior to theirs. Although   the   word   rank  is   often   used   inter- changeably with  grade, this is incorrect. Officers hold  a  grade  (captain,  commander,  etc.);  they outrank  a  junior,  or  they  rank  from  the  date  of appointment  to  their  grade  (date  of  rank). 9-1 10. 12.
