    Interesting patch with double border indicating COMBAT CLOSE - PROTECTION TEAM. Center has depiction of operator in combat kit with Oakleys, body armor, LBV, M4, and drop leg pistol holster rig. The man is standing in front of a Suburban type vehicle. I'm thinking this might be for a contractor type position or team. nay information would be appreciated.

    "I looked up at the bunker in front of me and saw a khaki-uniformed NVA with a pith helmet, chest web gear, green Bata boots and an AK, Type 56, and no other identifying insignia. Then I shot him." -- Sergeant Tony "Fast Eddie" Anderson, RT Kansas, TF1AE, 1971

    "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here am I. Send me." - Inscription on the dog tag resting on the flag-draped homeward bound casket of an American Special Opearations warrior killed in action in Afghanistan, July 2005. - Dick Couch - Chosen Soldier

    Yeah, it does seem to be a contractor. Many of them had a job of protecting the VIPs.
