The E you see is a ship award. Engineering E for excellence in engineering. Battle E for ships battle readiness E. Es are awarded to the crew and ship for excellence in their particular departments. This is my take on the pic but it has many decades since I served. The hash marks are the number of times the ship was awarded that particular E. Others will probably give more detail since this is a bird farm and I served on a submarine.
