    Need Help with this AStan Made Patch

    Post by kriegsmodell on Wed Mar 14, 2012 2:47 pm



    A recent pick-up that to me has a "SOF feel" to it with the arrowhead and sword at the center. Task Force at the top and Centuriones at the bottom. Also note the arrowhead is in the Afghan colors and the XLI Roman numerals for 41 on the sword. It is mounted on velcro. I'm thinking it might be French but unsure. I found some hits on Google for TF Centurion but the duty assignment and description did not seem to match. Any thoughts would be most appreciated.

    Hello,
    It's US MISO Task Force 41 (PSyOps) from Kabul. Now this TF is being replaced by other US MISO TF.

    Thanks Rafal!

    Here is some further information: MISO (Military Information Support Operations) is the US Army's new terminology for our Psychological Operations (PsyOps). What was previously know as the 4th Psychological Operations Group (Airborne) is now known as 4th Military Information Support Group (Airborne) or 4th MISG(A). It is based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina and is a part of the United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC). It remains as the United States Army's only active military information support operations unit. The 4th MISG(A) currently consists of a Headquarters Company, four Regional MISO Battalions, one Tactical MISO Battalion, and one Media Dissemination Battalion.

    I am also going to post this information in an older thread for 4th Psychological Group Operations Group (Airborne) patches.

    Your welcome!
    I have also 4 or 5 different prototype patches of this TF.

    Where did you post a thread for 4th Group patches??
