    Thanks Andrew..  Mainly know this stuff because I am a former Squid, albeit the Airdale type.  

    Also, if you notice, on the blueberry blouse and trousers the US Navy and nametapes are embroidered in gold letters.     Gold letters are for Officers and CPOs   ( Chief Petty Officer ). Silver is for E6 and below.

    Nice double Big Red One..

    Sal, while we are looking at USN items, do you have any insights on this one? A Seabees BDU with an 83rd ARCOM SSI?
    This is an early model jacket with Elvis collar, dated 1982.

    Andrew,

    Another good one..

    Looks like at some point Mr. Young was attached to 83rd. ARCOM.   Probably during a large construction project.

    Not uncommon to see US Army SSIs worn on blouses from other services .


    I have a couple of USAF blouses somewhere with 82nd Abn. SSIs and jump wings.
    CIBs and other appropriate decorations are authorized for wear to those who earn them while attached to an US Army unit.

    Yes, I had seen army SSIs on the air force BDUs, but this is the first one I have come upon for the navy. Thanks.

    BTW, here is a photo of Mr. Kelley's blueberry with golden Information Dominance insignia and silver enlisted type Expeditionary insignia.

    I agree; I picked this one out of a pile of about 50. Most of the rest were fully or partially stripped.
