Coast Guard Lieutenants (junior grade) are required to own the Dinner Dress, Full Dress, and Service Dress White uniform and have the option of owning the Dinnner Dress White Jacket uniform. On these uniforms, their insignia of rank—a gold stripe near the outside edge of the board with a stripe half its width above it, and a gold Coast Guard shield sewn on 1/4-inch above the upper stripe—is worn on Hard shoulder boards inserted through shoulder loops then secured with a snap-button. Lieutenants (jg) also wear hard shoulder boards on Reefer and Bridge coats that come with shoulder loops.

Designed for wear on garments manufactured with epaulets (sometimes referred to as “shoulder straps”), Enhanced shoulder boards have an open-ended piece of elastic fabric on the underside that allows the epaulet to be inserted through the device. Lieutenants (jg) wear enhanced shoulder boards with the short-sleeve Light Blue shirt of the Tropical Blue uniform and the long- or short-sleeve Light Blue shirts authorized for the Service Dress Blue “Bravo” uniform. Outerwear on which Lieutenants (jg) wear Enhanced shoulder boards includes Bridge Coats with epaulets and Wooly-Pully and Cardigan Sweaters (except with the Winter Dress Blue uniform).
