It didn't make sense to me that they would actually wear them... same reason the sarge would dress like a grunt in Vietnam... don't display your
rank, and you won't be the first target. Also, I kinda remember someone talking about black ops missions where they wear nothing that labels them in
any way... no dog tags even.
Now, black ops making these as "trader patches", I believe. In boy scouts, before we went down to Philmont we made sure to buy a bunch of extra
Longs Peak Council patches for trade to other troops from other councils... I had about 3 other councils' patches... a troop from Alaska had a neat
one, but I couldn't get one.
I could definitly see these as possibly black ops, but if you consider that you take a design into a shop and have a dozen made up for you and your
copilot/buddy/bunkmate, just so you can trade with some other, and consider how many troops have probably done this, I'd say the chance is very low.
