    Posting this here as it seem like the best fit as far as a forum category. Same with the title, kind of making this up on the fly. This pin came in a grouping of items that I received from a JSOC Operator. Color plastic pin with crossed flags denoting partnership and cooperation between the United States and Afghanistan. Should have put a ruler down for scale but the pin is approximately two inches by one inch. Simple safety pin attachment to the reverse. I thought the use of the term America was interesting.
