Well . . . I hope someone knows, as that is very interesting! I wonder what the goat with the NAVY blanket stands for?????

the mascot at the US Naval Academy is a goat. West Point has a mule. You will find goats representing the navy just as you will find mules representing the army even outside of the military academies.

 

I assume that the sub badge has been modified as a sweetheart piece for a girl who was dating a midshipman who was expecting to enter the submarine service.
