    I ran into a few German Marine junior officers at FLETC Charleston a decade ago… They were there for the USCG’s boarding officer school. Pretty good dudes to chat with – they enjoyed the Yuengling at the G-bar. LOL

    Thanks for posting it! Just some additional informations: The badge is worn on the right breast. It is awarded after the sailor has passed the boarding operations course successfully. The badge shows a navy vessel in front of two crossed rifles. The wings underline that many boarding operations are conducted by helicopters.

    The badge is not only for team leaders, every fully qualified boarding soldier earn the Badge.
