Like the United States Navy, the Coast Guard awards its enlisted Guardsmen a scarlet, blue, or gold service stripe, or hashmark, for every four years of active or reserve service in an active status in any of the Armed Forces of the United States. But the prerequisites for the gold service stripe are quite different: Any enlisted Sailor in the Navy, regardless of grade, whose most recent 12 years of service qualifies for the Good Conduct Award is issued gold service stripes, while the Coast Guard awards gold services stripes only to Chief Petty Officers (E-7) and above.

After selecting your enlisted grade in the Rank selection box, choose the uniform type and the appropriate color will be automatically selected.

If you’re purchasing this set of service stripes for a new Dress Jacket or Service Dress Coat you’re buying from us, you’ll be given an opportunity to take advantage of our Rating Badge and Hashmark Sewing Service when you add the jacket/coat to your shopping cart. (Note: you will need to add your Rating Badge separately to your shopping cart.)
