Sometimes called a Combination Hat, the Coast Guard Combination Cap for Senior Officers is easily distinguished by a single row of oak-leaf ornamentation embroidered with lustrous gold bullion on the felt-covered visor. Like all Combination Caps for Coast Guard Officers, the Commander / Captain's cap features a gilt spread eagle, about 2.75” in height and bearing a shield on its breast, mounted on the golden cap band. In its talons the eagle clutches a fouled anchor, a symbol of obstacles, trials, and tribulations the Coast Guard faces as it seeks to fulfill its missions. The eagle insignia is attached to the mount of the cap’s dark blue hat band.

Any Coast Guard members who has ascended to Senior Officer status knows the various regulations regarding the Combination Cap and that they must be strictly adhered to. Regardless of coiffure choices, no hair may be seen below the visor or front brim. The bottom edge of the cap is to be horizontal as it rests squarely on the head, and the fit must be snug and comfortable, but not at the expense of a professional appearance: the front of the cap’s frame should be between 1” and 1.5” above the eyebrows.
