Design rationale

As a retired Coast Guard Commander, the coat approximates the after edge of the international orange racing stripe on the port bows of the 11 Coast Guard Cutters in which armiger served. A gold star is the aurthorized top mark on the flagstaff of a naval commander. The pentagon alludes to one of armiger's duty stations on the Joint Staff and Office of the Secretary of Defense. The purple anchor alludes to his designation as a "purple suiter" or joint staff college graduate.
