    I talked with a few guys on the forum and we all agreed that it would would cool to see the dope related patches in our collections. I hope you enjoy looking at them. Sorry the pics aren't great.

    These are all REPRODUCTIONS of the DEA FAST teams. They are coming from the US, China and Japan. I would love to own the real ones but they are few and far between.

    Pretty interesting patches. I knew there were narcotics officers participating in the GWOT but have not seen many of their patches. Thanks for sharing these examples; it is nice the differences. Thanks Clete

    Do you have any idea what that CNGS patch is for? Other than being for the Counter Narcoterrorism Global Support? I believe these guys trained law enforcement people in Afghanistan and also retrieved Mi-17 's.

    Great patches by ghe way! Those US made FAST patches are scary. They look just like the original ones.

    Here's one of my favorites: "FLINT 42 DEA air support", locally made in Afghanistan.
    I'm not sure what kind of support it did though. Looking at the size of the plane i guess recon?
    this is the first one i've seen. That's why I obliterated a part of the patch.

    Here is the same NIU patch that Aussie Digger posted
     but this one appears to be machine made.

    This patch was made remade in the US for the Air Unit Hq in Texas. There are 2 versions. One with the same thing probably hidden on yours and one totally with out.

    This one is not worn during drug enforcement but it is worn by members of the US Department of Justice while in the field.

    Glad you like them Fred.
    I think I have bought quite a few patches off you in the past. The Afghan made ones were sent directly from Afghanistan by a US Army Sgt working out there. He had listed a selection of Afghan made patches on USMF. One was the IOCC one I think, after that he kept contacting me with more and more patches that he came across.

    I think these are possibly were on sale in an Afghan bazaar somewhere.
