USAF Pararescue Class 2017-01 "Dirty Savage" Morale Patch
This is by far one of the best morale patches I’ve ever seen. A top quality patch that really gets my attention. Made in USA, 3D, 12-color, 3.42" x 3.5" PVC Patch.
Doing some research I found out through the PJ grapevine that this fabulous patch was developed by a PJ named Timothy B. from the 304th RQS for the Class 2017-01.
This patch has a lot of symbolism built into it that represents the Pararescueman career field.
The Guardian Angel - This patch element represent a Pararescueman's mission to save life and aid the injured around the world at any and all times.
Those Four-Toed Green Feet - The green feet are a tradition that comes from Vietnam. Air Force Pararescue helicopters call sign was Jolly Green. Since the Vietnam War, the majority of PJ's get a green feet tattoo on their butts once they graduate training and are an official PJ.
The Skull - The Candy Skull is a fairly new symbol that represents ABQ, NM, where the main Pararescue schoolhouse is located and where all PJ's receive their berets upon graduation from training.
The Stache - The mustache has become a tradition with many Pedro’s and PJ units as they deploy overseas, highlighting their sense of humor and reputation for being "a little outside the box".
Dirty Savage is just one Team's moniker and this class is known for being a rowdy bunch and a bit non-traditional!
