Hats Off

Visor Hat (officer-men)

Male naval officers wear the visor hat today.

The insignia in the center of the hat is an eagle on top of a shield in front of two crossed anchors. This designates the person wearing the hat as an officer. Like the service hat, the visor on a junior officer's hat is plain black and senior officers have gold oak leaves on the visor called "scrambled eggs."
