U.S. MARITIME SERVICE / MERCHANT MARINE OFFICER COMBINATION CAP

Manufactured in the USA with Mil-Spec materials to meet or exceed all pertinent regulations, our Combination Cap for junior officers (O-1 to O-4) in the United States Maritime Service (USMS) and United States Merchant Marine features the USMS cap device, whose design was greatly inspired by the cap device worn by U.S. Navy officer.
 
Like the USN design, it features a spread eagle surmounting a shield, but the shield is taken from the USMS seal and mounts a fouled anchor, while the Navy device has its shield mounted on two crossed, fouled anchors. The laurel wreath has been used since the earliest days of the Maritime Service to distinguish its insignia from those of the Navy or Coast Guard.
 
The gold chin strap is secured with screw-in cap buttons featuring either the USMS insignia—a fouled anchor wreathed in laurel with “USMS” inscribed above it—or a Merchant Marine insignia of a vertical fouled anchor bookended left and right by stars (USMS is the default).
