After seeing the show us your badges thread in Cop Talk, thought it would be cool to see everyone's patches. Your current unit, past unit, or combat patch. Or all of the above. Here's mine. Unit patch is 1AD and combat patch is 1 MEF.

Attached to 1MEU and now you rock their patch, even though the Marines don't wear unit patches?

I always laughed at people walking around with patches of units they were attached to for support ops. Not to turn this into a debate but unless you served in the unit, keep the patch off.

Actually, if you look at my right arm, there's another 1AD dorito patch, but we were authorized the MEU on also.

If you dont want to turn this into a debate, then why say anything? Didn't ask for your opinion, asked to see your patches.

I find you're statement rather strange. :rofl:

Any dunce with half a brain get find pictures and/or purchase any patch ever made for most every military unit of record.

The is no OPSEC issue that I am aware of with posting pictures of the shoulder insigna of any unit in the US Military.

Perhaps, you would like to explain this rather cryptic comment, you have made? :upeyes:

Cryptic,, yea I like that! No seriously though...you never know who monitors these things and what hacking abilities they have,,,and you wouldn't want your unit or yourself for that matter to be tracked.....it sounds,,,, out there, but it ain't....their are guys that can hack into your private e-mail and all kinds of things, and not necessarily from this site, but from your computer. Just be careful....I'm unimportant anyway so lets just say I'm weird...I admit it

Alright, we can turn it into anything you want. I'm not being difficult, I just have an objection to the whole authorization to wear patches for units you never served in. It's nothing against you or anybody directly, I find it a silly policy.

My unit and combat patch were both 82nd. I sometimes wish we had regimental patches.

I think that most of the Airborne Divisions had Regimental patches that were designed during WWII. They were never worn as shoulder patches; however, in many cases, they were worn on (Army AF) A-1 leather Flight jackets, as a large sew-on patch on the left breast, by many officers from those Regiments. If you take the 'Static Line' you'll see many of those Regimental patches on the cover, as well at the head of the Regimental columns in the paper. :cool:

Why won't it let me link to my photobucket account? Just shows the link even though the IMG tags are there.
The old < img > tags no longer work.

You need to either:
A) Use HTML code:
< img src=http://sample.com/sample.jpg >

B) Click the button on "advanced" labelled "manage attachments." Then, the image will upload to the server and show up as a tiny thumbnail. If you want to include the full-sized image, you need to add this code:
< attach >12345< /attach >
Where the "12345" would be the server-assigned code for your attachment.


NOTE: I put extra spaces in my code to make it display here. To make it work, take those spaces back out.

I'm with xxiv on this one... I wish we could wear regimental patches. I am damn proud to have been a Currahee and that is the unit I identify with. Our BN operated on it's own so we never really work as part of our BDE or DIV.

I also don't wear my 1st MEF or 2nd MEF patches even though I am authorized to. I am not a Marine so I am not going to wear a Marine patch. Proud to have served with them but I wear my 2ID patch because that was my unit.

I know guys that wear a different patch each day from units that they were attached to. It seems to make them happy. Personally that is not for me but who cares.

Here's a crazy idea...if you are issued a patch to wear, it isn't a security issue - if it was, they wouldn't issue you a patch. (I'm assuming you are actually in the military).

I still see no reason not to post one's patch here on GT, active duty, retired or one who has served. (Especially for veterans, no longer on active duty.)

Most every Army unit in Iraq and Afganhistan, wears both their division and/or combat patch on their uniforms. They have them on both arms, in most cases.

I don't think it's any secret which units are serving in these AOs. The news media and the military itself, (PIOs) usually posts rotations of major unit's to both places.

The exception IMO, would be specialized units like SEAL teams, SF ODAs, Delta, Ranger and other Special Operations units designated for Special missions, etc.

I served 3 years with F Troop 2/11th ACR out of Bad Kissingen, Germany. I was the gunner on a 4.2 inch Mortar. Later I became the TC when I made E5 Sgt. I was there '76 -'79. Rotated back to the states - Ft. Stewart, GA. F.O. with the 1/35th FA for the 24th Inf. I didn't even put their (24th) patch on my uniforms. "ONCE CAV ALWAYS CAV". Out in Sep. '79.

'79.I had to look up the 24th ID history after seeing that, since my unit is currently under the 24th ID. I didn't know that the 3rd ID label was taken away from (what is now) the 1st ID, and given to (what was then) the 24th ID in 1996. The 24th ID was inactive until it was "reactivated" in 1999 into what's basically a placeholder, consisting of three National Guard brigades (GA, NC, SC).

It's funny that all the units of the 24th ID are in the southeast, but its headquarters is in Kansas.

The 24th ID was stationed in Hawaii, Korea, Germany, Georgia, and now KS headquarters (with GA, NC, and SC guard units under it).

I'm a 68W (M6), still in training for my ASI, so I wear the MEDCOM patch. Had orders for 25th ID after AIT, but it didn't matter since I was already scheduled to my ASI.
We'll see what happens when I graduate here. I have a good friend from AIT who's now a Medic with the 4th ID, so I wouldn't mind heading up there.

Apparently the pic posting criteria has changed so I won't bother, but if you've ever been to an Army hospital, you've probably already seen it anyway.

The 24th ID also served in the Occupation of Japan and was the first units to korea during the Korean War. The Division Co. (Gen. Dean) was captured while hunting NK T-34's with a 2.7 bazooka. (They tended to bounce off T-4's.) :upeyes:

I got that catalog too. And I agree with what you said.
The FBI has busted people for impersonating the military
all the way up to the MOH.

Since Im prior Airborne I can recommend the silver wings from their catalog. Since I polished my jump school wings with such "love"
that bronze/copper started to come thru,. I wiped the silver completely
off them.

These wings are made of pure silver. Or close to it.

And if your Airborne, what else would you want pinned
on your chest other than what SSG Barry Sadler told the
World?:supergrin:

Gotta go with Bren on this one. If you have security concerns, why tell someone you have security concerns? Just don't say anything.
I'm a spy, but I can say no more.
Now, if you show your patch and tell where that unit is or has been, that's different.

Not all of us have that option. I'd love to wear just my units patch as a combat patch, but being that we were only a company, and assigned under another unit, we wear theirs.

I can find the MILPER message on my computer at work, but the bottom line is you are authorized to wear the "Combat Patch" to the unit to which you are actually assigned...regardless of who you were attached to.

As a matter of fact if my memory is correct your "Former Wartime Shoulder Sleeve Insignia" is required to be the unit to which you are assigned. The Department of the Army is cracking down on units authorizing Soldiers from units that have Shoulder Sleeve Insignia to wear the SSI of the units that they are attached to.

Wear the patch from the unit to which you were assigned with pride!!!

Good info! I think AK point though was that he would like to wear a lower echelon level patch. For example I would love it if we wore regimental patches instead of divisional. We usually operated as a stand alone BN combat team anyway, and rarely did an op larger than BDE size that I know of.

The 82nd and SETAF Airborne for SSIs. My regimental crest was the 325th Airborne Infantry Regiment.

My vote for the best looking patch of all time: a tie between the 173rd Airborne Brigade's winged bayonet and 17th Airborne Division's golden talon.

My choice for the best patch is the 187th RCT, This was before it was part of the 101 worst chairborne. :rofl:

My favorite patch would be my old unit, the 82nd Abn, (of course).:)

Outside of that, some of the old patches I think would look striking
on Army greens:

My first choice is:

135th Airborne. Which didnt exist as it was a "Ghost" Division. But what
an impressive patch. If only the Black Widow had a red "hour glass"
embroidered in her belly it would have been perfect.

9th Airborne: Again, the cloud on Army greens.

21st Airborne: Clouds and lightning on Army Greens.

84th Airborne: Wood cutting on Army greens.

Here's a short list of some patches I am looking for if anybody here has any of them...

Surefire
Mossberg
DPMS
Safariland
Magpul
Glock (Gold)

I'm not really a patch "collector" per se, but I do have one from every agency I have ever worked for.

I also need stickers of the same patches that I named too.

Cryptic,, yea I like that! No seriously though...you never know who monitors these things and what hacking abilities they have,,,and you wouldn't want your unit or yourself for that matter to be tracked.....it sounds,,,, out there, but it ain't....their are guys that can hack into your private e-mail and all kinds of things, and not necessarily from this site, but from your computer. Just be careful....I'm unimportant anyway so lets just say I'm weird...I admit it
gotta have someone around for laughs

Seriously now.....more can be found out about you, your unit etc etc by simple creative use of search engines. It is not really necessary to hack anything...generally speaking.

The information floating around on the internet should disturb everyone.

Formerly, the 70th ID--the only patch to be the shape of one of its elements--an axe head. The colors were moved last summer to Fort Knox from Seattle's Fort Lawton. The Mt. Hood (Oregon) snow peak will surely confuse some, as will the Douglas fir tree. The 70th's patch was last with the 70th RRC, who shall cease to be, 1201 Wednesday morning :crying:

Currently, the double headed eagle.

As of Sunday, the Tough Ombre's (90th ID).

It's an honor to serve,

Don't you mean 90th RRC? I'll be wearing the same patch myself, come the start of October. (For a few days, at least. I might have yet another after I deploy to Virginia.)

09-29-2008, 10:56
Roger, it's the 90th RRC which carries the colors of the 90th ID, same as the 70th RRC carries the colors of the 70th ID. Of course, with the constant renaming, I'm not sure whether the 90th RRC is the RRSC, the RSC, or what? All I know is that I've changed my Class A's twice and not worn 'em with the current patch yet.

Attached to 1MEU and now you rock their patch, even though the Marines don't wear unit patches?

I always laughed at people walking around with patches of units they were attached to for support ops. Not to turn this into a debate but unless you served in the unit, keep the patch off.

Don't get me started. I see guys with 25th ID, 173d Abn, 82d Abn, etc. on their right sleeves who were remotely associated with these units wearing them as combat patches.

Agreed. A ton of guys from my BDE decided to wear the 1 MARDIV and 2 MARDIV patches. I don't get it myself. I joined the Army, not the Marines, and am damn proud of the unit I served with.

1 Marine was awarded the Navy Unit Commendation medal while we were attached as one of it's infantry brigades. I feel that we played our part in earning the medal and am proud to wear it. But I would never wear a 1st Marine patch, although they are an awesome unit with a proud history, because I feel I didn't earn it.
