Enlisted Rate Insignia
Figure 9-11.—Typical uniforms for enlisted personnel below CPO. uniform for male personnel E-1 through E-6 (fig. 9-11). Uniforms    for    chief    petty    officers,    like officers,  are  of  the  distinctive   and   traditional double--  breasted  coat  and  tie  style  shown  in figure   9-12.   The   differences   between   officers’ and    chief    petty    officers’    uniforms    are    in identifying insignia. Chief  petty  officers  wear  a  visor  cap  similar  to the   junior   officer   type.   The   chin   strap   is   black leather,  and  the  insignia  is  a  gold  fouled  anchor  on which are superimposed the  silver  letters USN.  The number of stars atop the anchor reflects the rate of a senior or master chief petty officer: one star for senior and two for master (with a third star for the master chief petty officer of the Navy). Petty officers wear, midway between  shoulder and  elbow  of  the  left  sleeve,  a  rating  badge.  The badge  consists  of  a  perched  eagle,  the  specialty mark of their  rating  (see  figs.  9-13  and  9-14),  and chevrons,  indicating  the  rate.  Senior  and  master chief  petty  officers  wear  stars  above  the  eagle  of the rating badge to indicate their rate, as shown in figure   9-10.   In   addition   to   the   rating   badge,              Figure 9-12.—Uniforms for CPOs. CPOs  also  wear  miniature  fouled  anchors  on  each collar  tip  of  the  khaki,  working  blue,  and  tropical white shirt. The  color  of  a  rating  badge  varies  according  to the uniform  on  which  it  is  worn.  Enlisted  personnel generally wear scarlet chevrons on blue uniforms and blue on all others. The   service   stripes   (hashmarks)   on   the   left sleeve below the rating badge identify the number of years  an  enlisted  person  has  served  in  the  armed forces.    CPOs    wear    7-inch-long    diagonal    service stripes;   E-6   and   below   wear   5-inch-long   diagonal stripes.  Each  stripe  represents  4  years  of  service  in the  Navy,  Marine  Corps,  Coast  Guard,  Army,  Air Force, or Naval Reserve. All enlisted personnel below CPO wear red hashmarks on blue uniforms and blue on others. Personnel who have completed 12 years of active service (broken or unbroken) in the Navy and Naval Reserve with good conduct wear gold chevrons and hashmarks with the blue and white uniforms. Personnel  below  paygrade  E-4  wear   3-inch- long   rectangular   group-rate   marks   on   the   left sleeve  in  place  of  the  PO  rating  badge  (fig.  9-13). The  color  of  the  stripes,  alone  or  in  combination with  a  specialty  or  striker’s  mark,  indicates  the 9-14
