    Well I found a few. I got more somewhere just got to dig them up.
    These aren't on my case yet but a few will make it on there. Just some I acquired here and there. Most of them speak for themselves. The MKR on the bottom left corner is from Vinces shop in Louisiana "Mesa Kenetic Research" (the dude that used to be on sons of guns at red jacket firearms) after he went on his own. I stopped in at his shop as I was driving back home to Texas after I retired from the military.
    My favorite is the big one in the middle, that was our unit patch and motto in Afghanistan. Good times. Man how I miss being out there, if you can believe that.

    Thank you sir. I loved every minute of it.
    But like all things it eventually had to end, 20 was enough, and more family time was what I really needed to get back to.

    I do not collect morale patches but my oldest daughter does. I thought you guys might like to see her collection. Not shown is two full books of Mil-Spec Monkey patches. When she hangs them she will send me a shot. The first pic is while she was mounting them and the second shot is the start of her display in her new house.

    Did you ever find it? I saw something like it at a flea market in Seattle, maybe two years ago. It was a single large patch, combining two pictures, with a divider down the middle, separating them. On the left was a picture through a scope, crosshairs on the forehead of Castro, caption "FIDEL". On the right side was a picture looking into the muzzle of an AR-15 held by a US marine, caption "INFIDEL". Should have bought it.

    I ended up having something similar made. I believe these were originally sold by Crye precision.

    I don't usually wear patches or collect patches.

    The stuff was all my mom & dad's, from World War II and the Cold War days, & Vietnam era.

    In 1970 long dark coats became fashionable for men & I asked my dad for one of his air force overcoats to wear. Also because were stationed on the edge of Frostbite Falls Minnesota and I had to walk to school in the winter. He made me give him the stripes and the USAF buttons and sew on generic dime-store buttons & there are those 1960's USAF buttons.

    Other than this I have very little of his military service as momentos as he didn't keep much.

    For most of my life Dad wore this patch:

    He wore this one one in the early sixties:

    I don't know anything about this one:
    20161102_075752.jpg


    Some of the little pins are my mom's Girl Scout pins, and my sister's Girl Scout pins, and various religious and Family Service pins.

    There are also a set of dog tags, and an Air Force folding keychain screwdriver. The in decipherable round silver pin reads 21 and I have no clue what that's about.

    BTW, I understand what all the medals are but I don't know what all the non-similar ribbons represent. except I believe the green and uellow one is from Vietnam.

    Don't wear patches, but I've seen a couple that might change my mind. A guy had one on his range bag, but he left before I could find out where he got it. It said "Run your gun, not your mouth". If anyone sees that one, let me know where you saw it. I'll buy it.

    Looked like a name tape, but I'd look at anything.
