    Private military schools need no authorization to create insignia.

    No it's not marked. I figured since it represents the M.A. that they had to adhere to regulated items. Thanks.

    The New York Military Academy is located about 20miles away from me. The NYMA is essentially a private military high school. I believe many of it's students go on to the Military Academy at West Point, which is also located very nearby.

    Since it's a high school and not an official entity of the U.S. Military, I don't think they have to adhere to official military regulations.

    Not sure what you want to know my friend but this symbol has changed over the years. And this is the modern style 50, 60ish IMO.

    Unique style almost like the pro baseball teams. As for the academy being in Peekskill, it was another military academy that closed in 1968 known as Peekskill Military Academy, due in part by the NYMA's presence and enrollment. Thanks again folks.
