Understanding Army & Navy Goods Terminology

Some of the most popular items include backpacks, military issue blankets, combat boots and other footwear and outdoor gear. Collectors also shop in these establishments for Marine Corps equipment and supplies, and items worn or used by members of city and state police forces. When shopping for these products, it will be helpful to know the meaning of the following terms.

  • Surplus – Army or Navy surplus refers to any goods that are resold when no longer needed by the military.
  • Army/Navy Surplus Store – A place to shop for military equipment, supplies and apparel.
  • Camouflage – A special type of military clothing designed to blend in with a soldier’s surroundings.
  • Duffle – A drawstring canvas bag traditionally used by sailors to carry personal articles.
  • Badge – Usually made of cloth, a badge on a military uniform identifies rank, office, or membership in an organization. Some badges are also presented as an award or honor.
  • Medal – An award, often in the form of a cross or a star, given to a member of the military for outstanding service or achievement. Many military medals are prized by collectors.
  • Tent – Unlike the traditional canvas tents used for camping, an army tent can be large enough to hold a dozen or more people. Made from sturdy all-weather canvas, these tents may originally have been used by the military as a command post or aid station.
