    I have several MPRI shirts and a winter jacket, but have never seen anything like this before. Very cool and very uncommon.

    Found the name of Patrick R. Ballogg, a former 5th SFG operator (90-95) that's now an Independant Military Professional. He was a Sergeant Major with the 1st BTN, 5th SFG during the Somalia campaign and had been wounded (shot in the right shoulder and hand) in an ambush there in July 1993, during a military convoy.

    Maybe this is your man...

    Hope this helps Wink
