The US Navy and Coast guard use a different rank structure. Lieutenant Pete Mitchell is correct. Refer to http://www.uniforminsignia.net/index.php?p=show&id=65&sid=1289

Very true, I was confused by this at first but my grandfather was a Lietenant in the Navy and flew Wildcats and later on Hellcats, and in the picture of him that I have, he is wearing Capt. bars but he was a Lt. He was telling me about how the rank structure is different from the Marines and Army

Yes in the Navy it's not just LT that is different. A navy LT is a Captain in the other land based services Marines included. Then a Captain in the Navy is equal to a Colonel in the other 3 services as well. Can be confusing to a civilian. I spent some time in the US Army. Got out as an E-7, which is different in all four services. Army - Sergeant First Class, Marines - Gunnery Sergeant, Navy - Chief Petty Officer and Air Force - Master Sergeant or First Sergeant depending on your assignment.
