    Complete Mystery - Red, White, and Blue Shield with Star & Machete - WTF?

    Post by kriegsmodell on Mon Aug 22, 2011 11:31 pm

    Okay, this one is a complete mystery. Sent back by a friend in 5th SFG(A) and he didn't know either. Large red, white and blue shield with center star and what looks like a brown machete across the center. It's got to mean something! Hoping someone here can help or at least has a theory. Couple of pics follow:






    Hard to see in the pics but there is a black border around the flat edge. Decent detail and quality construction. Someone knew what they wanted when they had the shop make them up.
