Welcome to USN,COAST GUARD & OTHER SEA SERVICES'S RATING BADGES AND COLLECTIBLES. This site was created to i.d. the rating badges and insignia of the sea services. The pictures are items from my collection. As of now I only have rating badges and insignia of some of the sea services. I plan on adding uniforms,headgear,and other items in the future.
