Introducing project “Military Insignia 3D”, featuring top quality military heraldry designs. Here you will find customizable apparel, accessories, custom postage and gifts decorated with rank insignia of a U.S. Marine Captain (USMC Capt).
In the United States Marine Corps, captain is a company grade officer rank, with the pay grade of O-3. It ranks above first lieutenant and below major. It is equivalent to the rank of lieutenant in the Navy and Coast Guard. The insignia for the rank consists of two silver bars, with slight stylized differences between the other branches and the Marine Corps’ version.
A Marine captain generally commands company-sized units. When given such a command, they bear the title Company Commander. Captains also instruct at service schools and combat training centers and are often staff officers at the battalion level. Marine captains also serve as Officer Selection Officers, commanding recruiting stations for commissioned officers.
