    It we could only read Arabic we would have a shot. When I saw the center design I was thinking flight but no knowing
    much about Afghan culture it could be a reference to something Afghans take to heart. Anyway thanks Arch!

    Interesting patch Clete. No idea either. What I will say is my first reaction was some type of civilian Afghan Airline patch. Did some googling and it didn't match. (At least what I found.) Second reaction was that the bird represented the Phoenix. Purely wild arse guesses.

    Not sure I will ever know about this one. There are just so many many patches from the GWOT it will be a challenge to ID them all.

    I've had luck using Google translate for an iPhone whilst researching some Ukrainian patches.

    I use the handwriting feature to copy the writing a word at a time. Seems to work for Ukrainian to English, worth a shot Fromm arabic to English.

    My initial thought was of a a mythical PHOENIX... Task Force Phoenix, Camp Phoenix..... Perhaps the ANA has taken over command of such actions or base? Just my 5 cents worth.....DREW

    Hi, is it possible that the patch in anyway related to one of the Indonesia airline? the logo in the center is very similar to their logo

    Patch ID Garuda-Indonesia-3-750x390
