The Diving Badge is a military qualification badge of the United States armed forces which is awarded to those service members who have obtained qualifications as military divers. The Diving Badge was originally a patch which was worn by Navy divers on the upper left sleeve of a service uniform. The Diving Patch was first created during the Second World War and became a breast badge in the late 1960s.
The Second Class Divers Badge is represented by a diverís helmet which is the basic equipment used in diving operations.
