Purchased this from a fellow forum member who brought it back from Iraq. Unknown patch in ACU with Maltese cross and crossed scimitars. Initials at top of CK and Roman numerals at the base. I translate the numerals as 10 - 6 - 3. The patch is backed with tan velcro. Thought is might be a memorial to a fallen soldier but could not find a KIA recorded for either October 6, 2003 or June 10, 2003 with the initials CK.
If anyone has an identifications or thoughts on same please post them up! Thanks for looking .....
