Let's see your patches

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 don't show patches for security reasons. I don't think its a good idea, especially if your active. But I do like to fight in all environments.

I find you're statement rather strange.

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?

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

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.

I went over with the 48th Brigade, but we were attached to 3ID, 3rd COSCOM, and 18th Airborne Corps while we were over there, and we were authorized to wear all 4 patches:

(I stole the 48th brigade pic from a scholarship fund set up in memory of a soldier KIA from my company. Donations welcome - http://www.mikestokely.com/ride-goal.htm )

The old < img > tags no longer work.

You need to either:
A) Use HTML code:
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:
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.

And, since we were OPCON to Task Force Mountain (10th Mtn Div) for Operation Anaconda, I get to wear this one on my right shoulder, as well:
