As they say, democracy has no place in the army. And in testament to this aphorism is the fact that most of my unit (damn you newly-posted-in personnel) voted for my other design which unfortunately got printed in the end.
For 3 bucks a piece with velcro backing, it’s a terrific bargain worthy of a Saturday’s hunt at the army market and cold calls to various printers. Printing quality, stitching and service was better than I expected.
(Check out Emily’s Camping & Industrial Supply at the Army Market if you ever need iLBV patches printed.)
I guess I shall recycle the better designs for another occasion and it appears I haven’t stopped designing things for the army.
