Last year, operators with Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command got their own name: Raiders. Now, just like the Navy’s elite SEALs, they’ll have their own insignia.

Effective immediately, MARSOC critical skills operators and special operations officers are authorized to wear a new gold breast insignia, the Marine Corps announced Monday night.

The insignia, the first Marine Corps-only uniform device to be authorized, features an eagle, wings outspread, clutching an upward-pointing stiletto dagger featuring the Southern Cross constellation that appears on other MARSOC and Raider insignia.
