U.S. Navy Baseball Caps

United States late 20th century

Foreign Service Officer Emil Skodon served at a number of posts that supported port visits by U.S. Navy ships. In appreciation for his help, he received caps with the ships’ names from the captains of these visiting ships. This simple token illustrates an important aspect of how our nation's military and diplomats work together and rely on each for support.
