******************************History: This beautiful badge was created in the 1960s, the insignia recognizes those service members who have completed the Navy?s Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) training, completed SEAL Qualification Training and have been designated as U.S. Navy SEALS.
The Special Warfare insignia was initially issued in two grades, being a gold badge for officers and silver for enlisted. In the 1970s, the Silver SEAL badge was abolished and the Special Warfare Badge was issued thereafter in a single grade. The SEAL badge is therefore unique in the Navy in that it is one of the few badges issued in a single grade for both officers and enlisted personnel. This is partly due to the combined training that both officers and enlisted receive, side by side, when involved in BUD/S training.
An enlisted member who receives the Special Warfare insignia warfarequalification is authorized to place the designator (SEAL) after his rating designator. For example, if Bob Jones is a SEAL-qualified Machinist's Mate First Class Petty Officer, then his written name would be MM1(SEAL) Jones.
The Special Warfare insignia consists of a golden eagle clutching a U.S. Navy anchor, trident, and pistol.
