    Afghanistan Medic Patch

    Post by kriegsmodell on Sat Aug 27, 2011 9:55 pm

    Picked this patch up only recently. OD green background with a medical design in white, red, and black embroidery over Afghan National flag formed in the shape of a stretcher. The medic device is reminiscent of the US Expert Field Medical Badge. It is black velcro backed. Although made in-theatre, I am unsure if this is an official insignia or not but found it interesting none the less. If anyone here can provide insight it would be most appreciated .....

    I saw these worn in wardak by the medics. The ana like "flair" just like any other military. Mostly I saw these worn on the sleeves of the ANA digi uniforms.

    I have one of the ANA medic pathces as well. Seeing they are the smae size as the Infantry pocket titles, them being worn there would make sense. Somewhere I have a photo of an ANA soldier wearing THREE titles on his right pocket!

    I have one of these too. I have also seen three ANA medics wearing them on Bagram in 2009-2010, except they wore them one their left chest just as we wear our EFMB on the BDUs. My patch and the three that I have seen were all sew on patches but made just like the one shown above and it is shorter than a pocket title. Tom

    Here is a pic of my latest version of the ANA CMB. Also note the two versions that I have do not have the cresent anywhere on the badge. Also note there are gold or silver badges too. I'm curious if the cresent or the color denotes an EFMB vs CMB or the other way around?

    The ANA patch are so random, I'm sure that could be a genuine issue medic patch, but either the batch cut costs or wasn't even incorporated in the design and etc.

    By the way, I've seen a picture of these being used, small velcro space over the left side on top of the Afg-N-Army breast tape (About the area of the Marksmanship badge), if only I could find it again. Mad
