    Cool picture. It looks like a black/white variety, similar to one Arch posted in first page of this thread.

    Have been talking to one of our members currently in Kabul and he seen the green commando patches being worn by US soldiers in Multicam.

    Hello,

    you are right with Afghan patches, but the Afghan Commando patches (different variants) are widely worn by US SOF personnel assigned to Afghan Cmdo or used to work with them in past.
    I saw different on US uniforms.

    Greetings

    Iv actually found very few pictures of single piece subdued patches. Heres the closest iv seen so far, either tan or faded OD but 2 pieces and embroidered in light colours.

    Cheers

    Here are ANA commando patches (The punisher skull). Those are for ANA commandos but also popular with US SF guys who wear them as novelty patches.

    I thought this was just a great DOD photograph for several reasons to include the shemagh and the ANA Commando patch in wear.

    This is a a DOD photograph of ANA Commandos and USSF advisors. Quite a bit going on here if you look close enough. The most obvious is the ANA man in front with twin mounted Commando patches on his front chest area AND the seldom seen small size patch on the tactical ball cap. The ANA man over his left shoulder sports a white punisher skull. Lastly the USSF advisor middle left has an Afghanistan national flag on his left shoulder and an unusual large size SF DI patch on his right.

    Interesting gear study and also quite a diverse selection of primary weapons. My thoughts only ......

    Another photograph of the ANA Commando patch in wear by a somewhat weary appearing US SOF man. Quality of the photo makes it difficult to make out the other patches being displayed.
