    On my last deployment I traded some patches with Romanians in quick passing and wasn't able to get much/any information. Would any of you be able to help me get some more info?

    Welcome to the forum, Romanian stuff is not my thing, so hopefully someone more knowledgeable will chime in.

    The third picture is the Romanian army 2nd Infantry Battalion Calugareni, they were the first into Afghanistan

    The fouth picture is the Romanian military police, the gendarmerie, unlike in the US they also have jurisdiction over civilians.

    The 5th picture is the Romanian army 300th mechanized infantry battalion sfantul Andrei, part of the 284th mechanized infantry brigade from galati.

    The sixth picture is the Romanian army 9th Mechanized Brigade

    The eighth picture is the Romanian air force 90th airlift base

    The ninth is a generic Romanian armed forces

    The eleventh is the US Army 7th special forces group 26th chemical reconnaissance detachment

    Twelve I have seen pictures of it being won in conjunction with a special forces arch but i am not sure exactly what it is.

    Hope this helps

    1st picture - DPFFA means Detașamentul de Protecție a Forței din Forțele Aeriene - Air Force Force Protection Detachment
    2nd picture - same thing earlier deployment
    4th is indeed Gendarmerie, but it's not military police, they belong to the Ministry of Interior, like the Police. They usually deal with riots, public order, stuff like that. They advise Afghan police.
    7th is US but I've seen some Romanian air force advisors wearing it..
    9th is Romanian General Staff
    10th ECMFA - Echipa de Consilieri Mentenanță Forțe Aeriene - Air Force Maintenance Advisor Team, integrated in the 738th Air Expeditionary Advisory Group
    12th is standard paratrooper patch
    13th is Navy Special Operations Group
    14th is some speciality in Gendarmerie, there is something similar in French Gendarmerie
    15th morale patch, I've seen it worn by Gendarmerie advisors
    16th is the 3rd Company, 300th Infantry Battalion 2019 deployment, Kandahar
