At random: The USS NAUTILUS SSN 571 steamed 60,000 miles on a lump of Uranium the size of a golf ball. A diesel powered submarine would have required 3,000,000 gallons or 300 railway tank cars of oil.

Watching Adm Rogers testify before the Senate committee I see that he is wearing gold dolphins below his ribbons and another gold pin, which I don't recognize, above them.

San any tell me what they are?

From his bio picture it appears that the top pin is the Surface Warfare pin. I say appears because his lapel covers most of it. Gold Dolphins below (if I remember Ric correcting me on day) should indicate submarine qualification but present billet is in the surface environment. But again, I defer to Ric.

Found the answers:

Lower pin is not dolphins but Naval Surface Warfare Officer and upper is [would you believe?], Naval Intelligence Warfare Dominance Officer.

At one point I heard about an Officer that wore Dolphins above, and Aviator's wings below. Medically disqualified from flying if I remember correctly. It was on one of these boards. There was also a phrase about him soaring with Eagles and now he swims with the fishes, but I can't remember it correctly.
