I had ordered this patch and my post office mis delivered it. I was pissed and thought I wasn’t getting one. Morale patch armory sent me another pepe plus an extra patch. Thank you Morale Patch Armory.
I ordered 2 SrAAF patches for an upcoming combat dining out. True to E-4 custom, this was a last minute idea and I needed them delivered to an APO ASAP. They arrived in just 7 days. Though the patches are more grey than regular ABU green (-0.5 star), their construction is top notch.
Just like the Chief SrA patch, looks just like it is! Yet again, super sticky velcro; don’t ever count on it falling off your pack or hat. Excellent to wear for that next safety brief before the weekend or when you’re not on day shift! As always, party and wear responsibly.
