Surface Warfare Officer Badge Full Size
The Surface Warfare Officer Badge, also called the “SWO Pin”, is the highest qualification one may receive in surface warfare. Those receiving the Surface Warfare Officer Badge must qualify as a line Surface Warfare Officer and must hold certifications as Officer of the Deck (both underway and inport), Small Boat Officer, Combat Information Center Watch Officer, and must be trained in shipboard damage control and quality maintenance (3M). The Surface Warfare Officer Badge is a prerequisite for Tactical Action Officer (TAO) training and the Command-at-Sea Pin.
Junior officers assigned to the Surface Warfare community are known as “non-qualified” until they receive qualification as a Surface Warfare Officer and receive the Surface Warfare Officer Badge. Such junior officers are granted 18-24 months to qualify Surface Warfare and must transfer to a different branch of the Navy if qualification is not obtained in the required amount of time. Such officers are known as “SWO non-attainment” with this designation entered into permanent military records.
Our Regulation Full Size Surface Warfare Officer Badge is gold plated metal badge. This is the same badge that is supplied to the U.S. Navy and sold in the Navy Base Exchanges.
