    Phil,
    I never could understand why anyone would want an aluminum patch
    on a uniform that you will be wearing in the field. It would catch on everything.
    The Iraqi's ran the whole field of types of patches, cloth, plastic, aluminum
    and rubber. I don't have any idea why.
    Here are two pictures of your patch in use. The first picture is dated 2016 so they were still in use then.
    Notice the 101st type eagle on his chest which is also made of metal and the IGFC metal patch.
    Bob

    There certainly interesting patches to collect.

    I guess they are "progressive" in their approach to making patches and it could just be a specific manufacturer?

    Here are several more sets.
