    Thats the end of a combat application tourniquet, kept in the pocket for rapid deployment.

    Not sure on that patch. But check this website out http://www.tioh.hqda.pentagon.mil/Recently_Added.aspx it shows units recently added (6 months) and it might be there. I also check the big patch sellers when I see a patch I am not sure of. Thanks!

    I only have an older CAT laying around to show. The new ones have a red tip. From what I understand allot of units have an SOP that one must be carried like that in whichever pocket they designate.

    hello,

    many thanks.
    it's probably a combat application tourniquet :: ::
    I googled again.
    I recently saw something on TV at the small red black shoulder bag.
    and today the image found.
    but I had no idea what it means.
    I think German soldiers have no such thing
    thank you guys
    ALEX
