Navy Crows Call For 1st Class 2nd Class and 3rd Class Designs

Navy Crows Call For 1st Class 2nd Class and 3rd Class Designs

US Navy Crow Shirts

US Navy Crow Shirts

The United States Navy from the rank of 3rd class Petty Officer to Master Chief wear with pride on their sleeves what is affectionately known as crows. In actuality they are Eagles but like the many generations of tradition and excellence the US Navy and its sailors have adopted this long standing theme.

After many years of working with hundreds of First Class Petty Officer associations, Second Class Petty Officer associations and Junior Enlisted Associations the request came in to the design team of Vision-Strike-Wear.Com that a design would be created for more specifically the Crows of the US Navy. Display it with pride. Wear it with honor and give it detail and a look of professionalism that members of the US Navy would find compelling is what the Navy sailors asked for.

Navy Petty Officer Crow Shirt

 

Like the thousands of custom military designs for shirts and apparel the US Navy Crow design also provided the sailors with the ability to further customize the design by changing the text adding a command, ship or other information that would make it specific to their unit, fcpoa, jea or scpoa.

Navy Petty Officer Crow Air Warfare Shirt

Then came a call for the US Navy squadrons to have their crow displayed with the proper insignia and Vision-Strike-Wear.Com updated it.

Navy Petty Officer Crow Submarine Warfare Shirt

The United States Navy Submarine Insignia created for our US Navy dolphins for these incredible sailors and the warships they serve aboard.

Navy Petty Officer Crow Surface Warfare Shirt

 

The Surface Warfare insignia with its importance and connection to the suface fleet of the US Navy was also developed to ensure our surface Navy could also acquire their Navy crows for the ships, command, surface squadrons and activities they have been involved in and wear a detailed crow design on theor Navy shirtrs, hoodies, dry fits, tanks tops and more!

The US Navy crow design began as a design request from the USS Gettysburg and its FCPOA and later became a design worn and welcomed by dozens of US Navy ships following. If you and your ship, submarine, squadron, or comman would like a similar detailed and quality design created by Vision-Strike-Wear.Com let us know by clicking the custom military design icon below.

Navy Petty Officer Crow Shirt

A NAVY PETTY OFFICER’S CREED

“I am a Petty Officer in the United States Navy, the strongest Navy in the world. I have the distinct privilege of being a leader of the finest Sailors anywhere. As such, I owe my Sailors leadership that they can depend on, trust, and follow.

I will neither fear nor shun responsibility and I am always responsible for my actions. I am always fair and impartial when dealing with my Sailors; remembering not to accept full credit for “A Job Well Done” without proper recognition of my Sailors first.

I am loyal to my subordinates, peers, and those officers appointed over me. I cannot favor either; my integrity must be beyond reproach.

I will fully support all Navy Regulations and Articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. I have the duty to correct and report all violations of these regulations that govern my Navy.

I instill Esprit de Corps throughout the Petty Officer grades in the Navy; bearing allegiance to each other. I owe all of the above not to just myself, but to the United States, to my Navy, and to the Sailors who work for me.” (Source: Militaryauthority.Com)

 

Our United States Petty Officers also serve aboard US Navy submarines and in their spare time they play a mobile game app designed just for them!

US Navy Crows, Squids, Gators and Goats Oh My

US Navy Crows, Squids, Gators and Goats Oh My

You will not find a lion, bear or tin man here! What you will find are more aggressive things that hunt ships and submarines at day, at night, in the air, on land and at sea.

The most modern naval power, the United States Navy, has had its mascots over the years. Animals that help define the character or attitude of a special group of US Navy sailors.

So the next question is what do you have when you find a murder, congregation, shoal and tribe massed together?

Murder – A grouping of crows!

Congregation – A grouping of alligators!

Shoal – A grouping of squids!

Tribe – A grouping of goats!

Answer? The meanest most bad ass group of United States Navy sailors!

The US Navy Petty Officers! ~ The Crows!

VSWA201NAVYCrowGeneric-v (1)

US Navy Petty Officers – The Crows!

 

Petty Officers in the United States Navy are the oldest of the ranks found within the United States Navy! They are proven leaders. They have advanced their careers by providing proof that they are tough both mentally and physically and can handle the rigors of duty both in a command on shore or fighting the seas with their shipmates in the waters, oceans and seas of the world.

Identified as connected as crows the Petty Officers wear eagles above their rank chevrons but tradition in the Navy has them identified instead as crows. The crow is the Petty Officer and the Petty Officer is the crow!

 

Crow Facts – Meet Mr Corvus!

Some interesting crow facts

“Corvus is a a widely distributed genus of birds in the family Corvidae. Ranging in size from the relatively small pigeon-size jackdaws (Eurasian andDaurian) to the common raven of the Holarctic region and thick-billed raven of the highlands of Ethiopia, the 40 or so members of this genus occur on all temperate continents except South America, and several islands. In Europe, the word “crow” is used to refer to the carrion crow or the hooded crow, while in North America it is used for the American crow or the northwestern crow.

The crow genus makes up a third of the species in the Corvidae family. The members appear to have evolved in Asia from the corvid stock, which had evolved in Australia. The collective name for a group of crows is a flock or a murder.

Recent research has found some crow species capable of not only tool use but also tool construction. Crows are now considered to be among the world’s most intelligent animals with an encephalization quotient approaching that of some apes.” (Source: Wikipedia)

So what we have is one of the most intelligent animals on Earth that hunts in packs called a murder!

 

 

Navy Squids – We Own The Seas!

VSWA199NavySquidGeneric-v (1)

US Navy squids!

 

For decades other military branches have tried to issue insults at our US Navy sailors by calling them squids. Truth is you might poke fun at a squid but would you really want to piss it off! Nope! They will drag you down faster that a turbo jet to the oceans depths then grasp you and tear you to bits! So for those of us who have used the word to define American sailors we suggest thinking twice.

Meet Mr Squid!

“The giant squid remains largely a mystery to scientists despite being the biggest invertebrate on Earth. The largest of these elusive giants ever found measured 59 feet (18 meters) in length and weighed nearly a ton (900 kilograms).” (Source: National Geographic)

Navy Gators! – Meet the Amphibians!

The US Navy and it days of running landing craft up to beaches, launching attacks from offshore and firing salvos to help pin an enemy down on a beachhead while US Marines engage enemy pillboxes and fortified emplacements has been the calling of the US Navy and its host of amphibious forces. Hello Gator Navy!

VSWA204NAVYNavyAmphibAlligatorXArmsGen-v

 

 

Seen what a alligator can do?

 

So when a group of Alligators get together it is called a congregation.

More facts about alligators

“An alligator is a crocodilian in the genus Alligator of the family Alligatoridae. The two living species are the American alligator (A. mississippiensis) and the Chinese alligator (A. sinensis). In addition, several extinct species of alligator are known from fossil remains. Alligators first appeared during the Oligocene epoch about 37 million years ago.

The name “alligator” is probably an anglicized form of el lagarto, the Spanish term for “the lizard”, which early Spanish explorers and settlers in Florida called the alligator. Later English spellings of the name included allagarta and alagarto.” (Source: Wikipedia)

The Goat Locker!

VSWA202NavyGoatChiefGeneric-v

 

Since April 1st, 1893 the United States Navy has maintained a backbone of proven leaders and sailors who are not made. They are built! These are the toughest, most well trained sailors that have ever commanded. They are the leadership and experience of the US Navy! They are the goats!

 

Between crows, squids, alligators and goats the United States Navy has an arsenal of the most experienced, well trained and dangerous men and women that protect America across the word’s seas and oceans and man the finest and most powerful navy in the history of naval warfare!
