More about this marker. Midshipmen pronounce "N*" as "N star." Members of a varsity sports team wear a small gold "N" (about 1/4" big) on their working uniform (the uniform worn to classes). If their respective sports team wins its yearly competition against Army, the gold "N" is changed to a gold "N*" (N-star).
