I am making a Christmas gift for my nephew who is an E-3 airman in the navy. I need a Navy E-3 rate/rank pin to epoxy into it and cannot find one. I checked the surplus store in town but had no luck so I thought I would appeal to the LJ community to see if anyone might have one floating around. If you do I would gladly pay you for it and cover the shipping.

Thanks, Jim

Jim, do you know anyone else in the military (preferably Navy or Marines)? If so, they can easily pick these up at the base uniform shop. If not, I can see if I can get ahold of one quickly for you.

Thanks for the input folks. A retired Marine friend of mine pointed me to a website he used to use called USA military medals, they have exactly what I need and it ships out tomorrow morning.
