The cap will be worn squarely on the head so that the visor is straight, just above the level of the eyes and parallel with the deck. Rank insignia is required for E4 and above Sailors on eight-point caps without the Anchor, Constitution and Eagle (ACE) logo embroidered above the visor. No rank insignia shall be worn on the eight-point cap with the embroidered ACE logo centered above the visor.
The new eight-point utility cap with Anchor, Constitution and Eagle (ACE) logo is required for wear effective 1 October 2019. When wearing the cap with the ACE logo, no rank insignia shall be worn on the cover.
