I know why there are 2 Eagle Globe and anchors just by being a Marine, Where can I find revelent proof as to why cuba is not located on the officer emblem? I have searched high and low and can only find stores selling or hitory of the Emblem not the diffrence. Any help would be great!

I researched this while I was in, because I didn't buy the whole "No officers when we went to Cuba" bit from boot camp.

I wrote the HQMC and the response I got was this, the officer emblem because it uses 2 different metals to put cuba on it would cost an extra $17 each. And that was back in 2002.
