Service Hat (office-women)

The female officer's hat is round with the sides folded up.

Like the visor hat, the visor on a junior officer's hat is plain black. A senior officer's hat has gold oak leaves on the visor called "scrambled eggs." The more scrambled eggs, the higher her rank.

The insignia in the center of the hat is an eagle on top of a shield in front of two crossed anchors.
