Yeah, I operate… (naval version)

You often hear about ‘operators’…mostly wannabes. In the military, there are many nicknames for them depending on where they are. One of them is “chairborne ranger,” a play on “airborne ranger.” I recently picked up a couple of “chairborne ranger” patches to add to my collection. It also sparked a though about a naval version (since most of the nicknames tend to be Army- or Marine-based).

Using elements from several Navy rates (aka jobs) and using the Trident (SEALs insignia) and the Chairborne Ranger patch as an inspiration, I created the Special Warfare Keyboard Operator device (Navy speak for insignia). The name is a play on both the SEALs and the Special Warfare Craft Crewman (boat driver).
