Navy-Marine Corps-Coast Guard Enlisted Aircrew Badge Insignia Plaque
Navy-Marine Corps-Coast Guard
The United States Navy, United States Marine Corps and United States Coast Guard issue the same version of the Aircrew Badge. The badge is a variation on the Naval Aviation Observer Badge with the letters AC centered on the badge?s front.
Known respectively as the Naval Aircrew Badge and Coast Guard Aircrew Badge, it is authorized for personnel who have undergone extensive training in flight operations of naval aircraft. Such training includes weapons management, electronic warfare, and water survival.
The Naval and Coast Guard Aircrew Badges are issued in a single degree with no upgrade devices authorized. A Naval enlisted person who has qualified for his or her Naval Aircrew Badge places the initials “NAC” in parentheses after his or her rate and rating; for example, a Chief Cryptologic Technician Interpretive, after having qualified for her NAC Badge, is identified as a CTIC(NAC). Officer Aircrew members are Naval Flight Officers, and receive the Naval Flight Officer Badge.
In addition to the standard Naval Air Crew Badge the Marine Corps also issue the Marine Combat Aircrew Badge. It is a decoration of the United States Marine Corps which is awarded to those enlisted personnel who have served as crew members on board combat flights.
For those who have participated in actual combat missions, bronze service stars are worn pinned to the top of the decoration. A maximum of three such stars may be displayed, one for every 20 hours of logged flight in a designated combat zone, in addition to the 20 for initially being awarded the Combat Aircrew Badge.
The Marine Combat Aircrew Badge can be issued to service members of both the Marines and United States Navy (while serving in a Marine squadron). Previously, recipients were required to first qualify for the Naval Aircrew Badge before they could be issued the Marine Combat Aircrew Badge; however, current regulations only require a set number of combat ‘points’ to be earned before wear is authorized. If both insignias have been earned, which insignia is worn is up to the wearer’s discretion, but it is unauthorized to wear both badges at the same time. A Naval enlisted person who has qualified for the Combat Aircrew Badge and at least one gold star places the initials “CAC” in parentheses after his rate and rating; for example, a Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class, after having qualified for her CAC Badge, is identified as a HM2(CAC).
