CG: Petty Officer First Class (PO1) Hoodie
Introducing project “Military Insignia 3D”, featuring top quality military heraldry designs. Here you will find customisable apparel, accessories, stationery, postage and gifts decorated with rank insignia of a Coast Guard Petty Officer, First Class (PO1). Petty officer, first class is the sixth enlisted rank in the Coast Guard, just above petty officer, second class and below chief petty officer, and is a non-commissioned officer. Each rating has an official abbreviation, such as ET for electronics technician, STS for sonar technician submarines, or FT for fire control technician. When combined with the petty-officer level, this gives the short-hand for the petty officer's rank, such as ET1 for electronics technician, first class. It is common practice to refer to the petty officer by this short hand in all but the most formal correspondence (such as printing and inscription on awards). Often, the petty officer is just referred to by the short-hand designation, without using the surname. Thus ET1 Jones would just be called "ET1". A first-class petty officer may be generically referred to as PO1 when the sailor's rating is not known, although some prefer to be called simply "Petty Officer". The rate insignia for a petty officer, first class is a perched eagle above three chevrons. The Coast Guard does not use golden chevrons. Working uniforms (all variations of the camouflage uniform) and metal rank devices do not have the rating badge symbol.
