Can anyone lend a hand with an identification for this patch? US made and seems to be in the likeness of a MultiCam pattern but the white inner edge is kind of strange. An ebay purchase from a seller in Texas who picks the shops and flea markets. He had no further information either, only stating that it was is a pile with other US insignia at a surplus auction. In case the pics are not so good at upper left is a black spade, lower right a sword. Couple of pics follow ......
Training entity, OPFOR, or? Any thoughts or assistance would be most appreciated .....
