Navy special warfare insignia, also known as the Seal Trident or its more popular nickname, -the budweiser- is earned after completion of bud S and SQT, is one of the most recognizable military badges of the united states navy.The special warfare insignia was initially issued in two grades, being a gold badge for officers and silver for enlisted. In the 1970s, the silver seal badge was abolished and the special warfare badge was issued thereafter in a single grade. The seal badge is therefore unusual in the navy in that it is one of the few badges issued in a single grade for both officers and enlisted personnel. This is partly due to the combined training that both officers and enlisted receive, side by side, when involved in bud S training. Advanced Mountaineering Pack.
