Our sleeve device for Intelligence Systems Chief Warrant Officers combines the gold Coast Guard shield with the Intelligence Systems Specialist mark of a crossed quill pen and lighting flash, both embroidered in gold, on a single square of blue serge fabric.

Sold in pairs to be worn on both sleeves of the Service Dress Blue coat, the device is placed on the sleeve with its outermost edge parallel to the cuff and the bottom of the shield a quarter-inch from the top of the CWO rank stripe, with the shield and ISS mark centered horizontally on the sleeve.

The Chief Warrant Officer specialty of Intelligence Systems Specialist (ISS) was established concurrently with the Intelligence Specialist (IS rating) in January 2008. The move was the ultimate consummation of the December 2001 decision to make the Coast Guard a formal member of the United States’ Intelligence Community by amending the National Security Act of 1947 to provide for the creation of the Coast Guard’s National Intelligence Element.
