Did a quick search for this and didnt see it posted yet...

www.newsweek.com...

It is a pretty cool audio clip/s of a guy who did some research into the meaning of several different badges often portrayed by different black ops member throught the ages.

Enjoy!

A lot of them look like morale patches that guys get made up while deployed. Every crew on my last deployment made up one and the meaning of them is unknown to anyone that wasn't on the deployment or flew with those guys.

Those dont have to do with Black Ops. Anyone in the military will know that these are exactly what jerico just described.

Every squadron will have some made up ones floating around. Or individuals will do it.

We have one here in Alaska that is of a mooning butt and says "we freeze our asses off so you dont have to"


They are like trading cards.

Those were great but I hate flicking through a slide show.
I found one I like.
Now I gotta find out about this "black manta".

Exactly. I loved the one by a tanker unit that said, "When man thought they could burn water". At the time, that model of KC135 had water injected engines.

Or the one from the guys at Beale that shows one guy kicking the other in the groin and it said, "Morale stops here".

Or the famous Air Force one w/a loaded jet that just says "Without weapons, we are just another airline"


I bet there are tons of these on eBay.

When I was down in the Falkland Islands, the royal Engineers down there had a motto on their badges to look like Latin

"Ubend Um, We men Dum"

About the best I saw


Peace...

Interesting, I like the first one "tastes like chicken" LoL. There was some funny and maybe weird thought behind that one.


Good post OP

I like the welcome to missiles the morale stops here. It depicts a guy being kicked in the nuts by another guy. Perfect representation of the missile career field

Wow, this guy actually wrote a book about a bunch of patches that were probably all made solely cause they look cool.

Hell 10th mountain spartans, have a cryptic spartan holding a severed head as our unit patch.But, I guess we aren't secret enough.

It's amusing to see a lot of the ignorant responses from people on this thread. I've noticed that people seem willing to believe nearly any wacked out conspiracy theory but when someone (like the author of the book in question) tries to provide verifiable facts he gets scoffed at.

The patches in Tevor Paglen's book are all genuine. They represent classified units and projects (the manta patch is from a Lockheed Martin UAV project, stikkinikki) and were mostly obtained from the people who were directly involved. Most were produced in very limited numbers and are mementos prized by their original owners. They are not "like trading cards."

You might also seek out Dwayne Day's recent online article on patches for classified NRO satellites and squadrons.

The two-part article, "Secrets and Signs," by Dwayne day and Roger Guillemette can be found on The Space Review:

www.thespacereview.com...

Overall, it is a good article. There is, however, one notable error in Part 2. In Day's description of a patch with the words NITWITS RUBES OAFS and SETEC ASTRONOMY, he suggests that "whoever produced the patch...had obviously not had a good experience with the NRO and its penchant for secrecy." In fact, this emblem is is a certification patch issued to qualified personnel by the commander of a certain unit. The rare patch, considered a controlled item, is prized by the recipients.
