The card enclosed with the brooch reads:
"This is a simple, yet powerful brooch designed exclusively for the United States Navy in 2001. The centerpiece and foundation of the Navy pin is the traditional anchor representing the integrity, courage and sacrifice of sailors and their families. For over 200 years they have been the heart, soul, and strenth of the Navy. The brilliant blue stones in the anchor portray the seas and oceans of the world-the home of the Navy. Perched proudly on the anchor is the eagle of th Great Seal of the United States. The eagle is carried where it must go by the Navy and represents their mission to deter aggression, maintain freedom of the seas and win our nation's wars. This elegant and beautiful brooch is a tribute to the greatest naval force to ever sail the seas the United States Navy."
