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.
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.
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.
The United States Navy Submarine Insignia created for our US Navy dolphins for these incredible sailors and the warships they serve aboard.
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.
It has been a pleasure to custom design for the the United States Navy and over the course of 2014 we have been honored to have worked with a variety of CPOA’s, FCPOA’s, SCPOAs, SCAs and USN Commands all over the world, warships of the line, Naval Air Stations, VBSS Teams, SEAL teams, Navy Seabees from Gulfport, MS and around the world, deployment designs for US Navy personnel serving in remote destinations from Souda Bay to Andros Island, Bahamas.
This year has been filled with with colorful and detailed designs and motivational pride building custom US Navy designs which Vision-Strike-Wear.Com has been excited to participate with these incredible units on. Nothing is more fun than participating in the creating of custom shirt development for our men and women in uniform.

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!
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.
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)
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!
Seen what a alligator can do?
So when a group of Alligators get together it is called a congregation.
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!
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!
