For USN provenance, this is my Standing Naval Forces Atlantic (STANAVFORLANT) shield badge in use when I served aboard the squadron flagship. We had the Commodore (USN one star resurrected specifically for this posting) and his staff aboard our Destroyer Leader/Guided Missile Destroyer USS LUCE (DDG-38) and had participating vessels from England, the Netherlands, Belgium, (West) Germany, Canada, Norway & Portugal.

ACLANT - Allied Command Atlantic pocket badge. ACLANT was also referred to as SACLANT (Supreme Allied Commander Atlantic). I wore this pocket badge while in the Marine and working for the CINCLANT/SACLANT in 1975.

Hi Henrik,

 

yes, ARRC. I mentioned that the NORTHAG patch is questionable because the axe is facing to the wrong side.

Circa 2012 Operation Enduring Freedom NATO ISAF patch in USAF spice brown. Made in Afghanistan (probably by Kyrgyz, but I cannot remember who ran the Bagram AB embroidery shop). Wore this on our ACUs until the Afghan portion of OEF was declared complete at the end of 2014. I participated in the last combat mission of Afghan OEF, took off New Years Eve 2014, landed on 1 Jan 2015. When we landed we were told to remove our ISAF patches since the “war was over.” Then took off a day later to support of Operations Resolute Support and Freedom’s Sentinel. Lol.

Naval Control of Shipping Organization

 

The organization within the Navy that carries out the specific responsibilities of the Chief of Naval Operations to provide for the control and protection of movements of merchant ships in time of war. Also called NCSORG.  (NOTE: The “Naval Control of Shipping Organization” was changed to the “Naval Cooperation and Guidance of Shipping Organization,” in October 2003.)

Naval control of shipping is a wartime concept, officially defined by the US Department of Defense and by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) as “the control exercised by naval authorities of movement, routing, reporting, convoy organization, and tactical diversion of allied merchant shipping.”  It does not include the employment or active protection of such shipping.   This concept is largely meaningless in peacetime, when the military has almost no capability of exercising “control” over commercial shipping.  The peacetime equivalent is known as Naval Cooperation and Guidance for Shipping (NCAGS).  The US Navy, in cooperation with the US Coast Guard and the Maritime Administration (MARAD), and allied forces assist the commercial maritime sector in identifying threats and taking steps to minimize risks presented by those threats.
