Not from me by any means and to be fair, they're running in the neighborhood of $50 or more. While I respect what ya'll do and have done, some people just want to cash in on your reputation. With companies out there like 'Tallywacker' and all the airsoft kids, its kind of crazy.

The way I look at it is that the stuff ya'll do is most important work the military does. Fiftyyears on from now some kid will look at one of your uniforms in a museum and read about GWOT and other areas and hopefully it will click for them. Patches, uniforms etc., I believe are important for that reason and with airsoft being so popular, alot of these will be destroyed, just like kids after WWII playing with dads paratrooper uniform.

Got off on a small tangent there...

I believe it wholeheartedly. Some of the patch guys go crazy for stuff like that.

He'd have to kill you if you did, then cut your head off and put it in a safe to protect the information... and that could ruin your weekend of shooting.

Hell I remember a 6 week JCET we did in PI we had like 10 different patches made, all different. But that is the patch that 1326 was using then and all the way up to Aug 2011 which is when I came off active and went to 20th.
I'll confirm this also... This is my team currently. That patch has since been laid to rest. And as CS says, there is not an official team patch. Here are the ones that have been used just since I've been on the team. You may find them all over Asia... At special locations

Just put one up today actually... Here is one more that we like to use. I guess you can say the Ex Umbris logo is most official since the qualifying members on the team agreed on that logo for our rings.

I really appreciate the added verification on this and the additional stuff that has been used. I find the artwork behind these to be some great work with more depth to them than most 'modern art'.

Thanks

Well thanks, I designed three of those logos... With the input of the team of course.

There was a character in that company when I PCS'd in 2006 that drove alot of this. He helped teams design a patch, mass produced it, then sold them on ebay and such. I wouldn't give 5 cents for any of them since anyone can have a copy made and sell it to whoever. If cool factor is what you're looking for, get a team guy to give you one. They were just for fun anyways, not official by any means.

Agree 100% with the problem of copies vs the real deal. I have one exception on ebay that I do buy from because hes a retired officer and now a contractor who returned from a-stan in January. I met him at a show and he had a lot of patches he brought back with him and that he was selling from the sew shops around Kabul.

As for direct I do have one from my buddy and am happy to have that. Beyond that I don't know anyone besides screen names on this forum so I have to ask questions here. Your community has been gracious in answering those questions and I really do appreciate it.

You seem intelligent. Don't fall for posers at sales stands either.

I was on that team before it went to four digits. Anyone remember Looker, Big Ed, Rammy, Timmy, or our ass-grabbing SGM? That was the era I grew up in. We had hats and shirts made then too but I'm keeping them.
