Chapter Covers

The Stephen Decatur Chapter No. 4 is very prolific and has created many covers since their organization on September 9, 1933. Cachets for this chapter have been created by various artists and efforts are made to identify them. To speed up the time for a page to fully load, they have been separated into smaller year increments starting with the year 1980. This Chapter is based out of Philadelphia, PA and they create covers for US Navy vessels, US Coast Guard vessels and other maritime entities. Please enjoy these covers that show our maritime history.

Cachet Artist and Director is Rich Hoffner unless otherwise stated.
