A little history behind the box.
Since before WWII… the combination cover has been the distinguishing symbol of the Chief Petty Officer! Way back then, when a Sailor was promoted to CPO, they only changed their hat! They still wore the blue dungarees (watch and old WWII movie and you will see)... So, the Combination Cover is the MOST CHERISHED possession!!! During initiation CPO selectees would be charged with making an appropriate container for this ICON of making CPO!
-- Life as we know it.....Is what we make of it........???
