Besides being eye-catching, this gold tie clasp featuring a sideview of a destroyer reflects the importance of this class of vessel in the U.S. Navy. With no battleships no active in the world’s navies and the U.S. possessing less than two dozen cruisers, the destroyer is the principal combat vessel for conducting Anti-Surface, Anti-Submarine, and Anti-Air Warfare roles. In early 2018, there were over 60 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers in the U.S. Navy fleet.
There are no longer any active battleships in the world. Only the United States, Russia, and Peru have cruisers. Within the U.S. Navy, the over 61 destroyers currently commissioned fulfill Anti-Air Warfare (AAW), Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), and Anti-Surface Warfare (ASUW) roles.
We also offer a silver version of the destroyer tie tack to accommodate veterans seeking to build a uniform in compliance with the regulations that were in effect the time they served, as well as for collectors who seek authentic insignias that comply to older regulations. Until the introduction of the Year-Round Service Uniform in 2004, enlisted males E-6 and below were required to wear four-in-hand neckties with the Winter Blue Uniform, with only silver tacks or clasps allowed.
Officers and Chief Petty Officers wear gold tie clasps with the black four-in-hand tie authorized for the Full Dress Blue and Service Dress Blue uniforms.
