Navy Patches And Navy And Marine Corps Awards

Aug 17, 2007
Following is an interview with a soldier about Navy And Marine Corps awards: "Where can I get the info for how and were to put patches on for my self, my unit has no funding to get my patches sewed on, so I have to do it myself if I want to get squared away. The Uniform Regs Chapter 4, Section 2 will explain exactly where you rating badge etc. Needs to be placed on each uniform. As far as obtaining patches, go to the exchange online store."

"You'll have to set up a username & password if you haven't already. You can order all uniform items and patches on here. This is part of the military exchange system, so everything is still tax free and there are free shipping/returns. Items usually take less than 1 week to arrive, as long as they have them in stock."

"Your NOSC should provide this service. It shouldn't be your job to have to pay for this out of your own pocket. Tailoring and sewing on patches should be included, just not ribbons, warfare devices etc. Both units I have been attached to did it. You're correct, but unfortunately there are centers that don't do this. Mine, NOSC Minneapolis, is one of them. If anything, keep the receipts for tax time. Well they said they have no funds? Even when it's the new fiscal year. Well my wife knows how to sew the patches for the shirts and know how to hem the pants."

"So all I have to take to the cleaners are the jackets. Normally if it is the initial outfitting (either a new reservist or NAVET) the NOSC will have all the sewing done for you. After the initial outfitting however it is normally the member's responsibility to have the patches put on. That is how my Center does it at least and I assume that would have to be system wide."

"I am attached to a ship and my drilling is spent onboard. As close to being active duty as a reservist can be. As soon as I get my quails done I will be on the watch bill. So, therefore my NOSC is on a navy base with an NEX right there. Depending on where your NOSC is, getting the patches done right, and your jumpers pressed right may be a problem for folks not familiar. They're normally pressed inside out, make sure where you take it to, they know what they're doing. There is a civilian lady that runs a part-time tailoring business out of her house for our NOSC."

"I took my cammies there to get everything sewn on and even pinned all the nametapes & crows where they needed to go along with explaining the uniform Regs. She still managed to screw up my cover, even after telling me she had a copy of the uniform Regs to go by."

"The Navy and Marine Corps Awards Manual, secnavinst 1650.1H, outlines all Navy & Marine Corps awards, criteria, and eligibility. Go to ndaws and there will be a link to the manual on the right. I hope this doesn't sound too obvious but the best place to start would be at the NOSC in your service record. Couldn't tell you exactly where but I know it should be in there. "

"There's nothing wrong with your answer, but it assumes that his record is accurate. I learned a long time ago not to make that assumption. By him researching it directly through the manual he: Learns where to look for the answer to any future questions on this subject, and Knows where to direct his Sailors to when they have a question on this subject."

"But it sounded like he wanted to look up to personally see if he had been given the award so I figured that would be the best place to look. I guess he would probably need to find out both if he has it in his record and if not, what the qualifications are for the award. Thanks for the reminder."
