Surface Warfare Enlisted Badge Full Size
The Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist Badge (also known as the "ESWS pin") is authorized for wear by any enlisted member of the United States Navy who is permanently stationed aboard a navy afloat command and completes the Enlisted Surface Warfare qualification program and personal qualification standards (PQS). For those who possess "underway rates", that is to say enlisted ratings which may only be assigned onboard underway vessels, the Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist Badge must be obtained after three years as a Second Class Petty Officer. Those failing to qualify are unable to re-enlist in their current rate. On each assignment to a new sea-going command, if Surface Warfare is the sailor's primary community, the sailor must re-qualify ESWS, though requalification standards are somewhat accelerated, and are often basically refreshers. Sailors for whom ESWS is their secondary community (mostly those in the Air Warfare community) are not required to requalify.
Our Regulation Full Size Surface Warfare Badge is an oxidized silver plated metal badge. This is the same badge that is supplied to the U.S. Navy and sold in the Navy Base Exchanges.
