    I had been looking for this patch for quite some time, and came across one this week. Does anyone have an information  on it - who was it intended for? Was it ever actually worn? And so on.

    Thanks."The Big Swing" patch Big_sw13

    So these were sold as souvenirs out of patch shops. I acquired one from a Veteran who was with the 1157th Trans. Company out of Wisconsin. Said he picked it up while hauling fuel around Baghdad. Mine is nearly identical to yours with the border being a slightly different color, some differences on the noose, and the lettering.
