    A few more USN insignia

    Hi all,

    Just a few more Navy insignia.

    Most of it is 70s, 80s vintage. The belt buckle and the uppermost insignia are SWCC insignia *, a contemporary and relatively new Qualification Badge.

    *(Special Warfare Combat(craft) Crewman, look it up on Wikipedia )


    The USN/USMC Parachutist Badges are also contemporaries, as is the Combat Aircrew Badge; they are 80s issue.


    The silver Special Warfare badge ( SEALs), and the silver EOD badges are obsolete, but I understand there may have been some successful lobbying to

    bring back the EOD badge.


    I believe the Silver Special Warfare badge may have been issue to enlisted Seals until the 70s
