    You will find 6 more specialist rating badges that were used only by the U.S. Coast Guard. They also used what rates the Navy had.
    You can find these specialist rating badges with the diamond and with out the diamond.
    In 1958 the navy added to ranks to the enlisted structure. Senior Chief petty officer(star above rate) and Master Chief petty officer(two stars above rate).
    A example of each below.

    SEABEES
    These CB rates were worn by the construction battilion. They did a way with these rates early in ww2 because they were confusing. Then they went to the DM along with there rating badge. In 1944 they went to the Seabee shoulder patch insignia. There's two example of the Seabee shoulder patch.
