Patch is NOT a patch worn on the uniform. Patch was designed and made to be put on the back of a jacket.

We had a crazy bunch of guys at Korat 72-73. We had unofficial berets with a tiger emblem patch. One time the flight chief got upset because everyone at guardmount was wearing different head-gear. He said we had to wear caps with a bill (camo baseball caps) style. One of the guys, Sgt Day, (I wish I could remember his first name) showed up at guardmount with a custom made ball cap with a bill 18" long. He also had his uniform pants tailored. He had the tailor add some additional material at the bottom of the leg. He had them tailored into 'bell bottom' fatigues. One of the most fun assignments of my 26 year career.
