"If that's as close as I can get, snag it for me or tell me where I can get it. I was still in the Regiment in '81 and we qualified Distinguished (in '79), so I guess its not a case of "stolen valor"."

"I'll keep my eyes open, Max. I looked yesterday and all the 2ACR patches were gone and only 3ACR and 11ACR patches were left. I think there was one '78 SUPPORT patch from 2ACR."

"Very close. The bottoms either read :Support, Qualified, Distinguished, or Superior. That tab from 84 is vastly different. I'm looking the "DISTINGUISHED" Subaltern Shoot patch from 1979 "

"What exactly are you looking for? There are a few assorted 2ACR qualification patches on eBay right now, and others come up from time to time. Something along this line?"

"Subaltern Shoot" Tank Gunnery Qualification Patches?

I'm trying to replicate a "tankers jacket" complete with the right patches. In the late 70s and early 80s when we qualified our tanks, we received pocket patches based on our scores, i.e. Qualified, Distinguished, or Superior. Any ideas where I might find just the patch? I really don't want to buy Lt Doyle's field jacket off of ebay.See More

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
