"I've seen similar patches for Hope and Change, the Obama election symbol, Mission Accomplished, etc" No you did not you liar. If you had seen any Obama patches the right wing, I mean white wingers would have gone crazy and demanded to have the men rightfully punished. These dumb squids or jarheads were wrong to do this and need to lose a stripe or a bar. And before you morons come on here and demand to see my service record and defend their actions, I will just write that yes, I am a disabled veteran from a Special Forces unit and no these guys are not allowed to wear that crap on their uniforms. And to the guy that wrote, "They're "organizational clothing". Not subject to the dress code." You have no clue as to what the hell you are writing about.
