If you train hard to be someone’s worst nightmare, then this patch is for you. It doesn’t matter if you are law enforcement, military, or just a citizen who takes the defense of yourself and family seriously. This patch is for those who keep the bad guys up at night.
The background of this patch is very poignant. It was created by Brad at MADCAT Aviator/Operator to pay tribute to those who lost their lives when Extortion 17 was shot down. Brad says:
Back in August, when Extortion 17, its crew, and the SOF team aboard was shot down, I had to do something in their memory. So I spent a Saturday creating a remembrance piece for them. The quote came from me…just something that I had thought up over the course of the day going through all the emotions. I knew some guys in the unit that flew the chinook, and being a pilot, it hits close to home.The meaning behind it is that wherever the enemy may be, they have to constantly listening to that ringing…that deafening silence in the night because they know we’re bringing the fight to their doorstep. They have to constantly be on watch and listen because they’re constantly being hunted by us.
The remembrance piece that Brad mentions is the picture below and the quote from the picture eventually found a home on this patch. I am proud to have this patch in my collection. You can get your own at MADCAT Operator/Aviator.
