 US Navy and US Marine Corps Aircraft Serial Numbers and Bureau Numbers--1911 to Present
Originally, the US Navy assigned serial numbers to its airplanes sequentially by manufacturer, a separate sequence of numbers for each manufacturer.
Marine Corps aircraft are procured by the Navy, so they use Navy Bureau Numbers, but the Coast Guard is a part of the US Department of Homeland Security (during peacetime) and uses its own serial number sequence.
In the Navy, these Block Letters or Numbers were affixed to the Bureau Number rather than being attached to the official designation as was the practice in the USAF.

 USN Service Medal Index
merican bluejackets and Marines were without official medals or other visible signs of their overseas service or combat for the first 120 years of the Navy's existence, since orders, medals and decorations were seen as the trappings of royalty and empire and ran contrary to the republican spirit present at the founding of our country.
The U.S. Navy followed suit on 27 June 1908, authorizing a series of "badges" for service as distant in time as the Civil War, the Spanish-American War and the Boxer Rebellion.
Foreign service medals issued to U.S. forces typically are not featured separately, although they may be illustrated and identified alongside their parallel U.S. award.
