Apaches was our company's radio call sign, as we were A (Alpha) company.

Now, I don't know how this worked in the field.

But pretty sure I couldn't read that sign from 100 meters, and I'd be tempted to get close to see what it said.

The shirt is a sort of joke, due to having signs just like it on the back of our HUMVEE's.

I understand the desire to wear your company's insignia, but I'd look into two things:
The written threat of getting shot, can have different legal implications as a civilian in the US,
And make sure this does not upset Apache MC.

Nice patch though.

Patches, signs, insignia ? I 'get' the emotion and proclamation of position, even the sardonic humor but in this brave new world I prefer to slide by unnoticed and unmolested as I go about my personal life.

Your needs may be different. Good luck with random encounters out there.

That’s really cool company insignia, think it’ll make a wonderful patch!

used these guys to make this patch from a t-shirt design:
Anderson Enterprises
Gary Anderson
4218 Ponce De Leon Drive
La Mesa, CA 91941

That's his unit insig.
Wear it with pride and thanks for your service.
If I saw you wearing it, I'd buy you a beer.

It’s hilarious how big tough motorcycle gangs are butthurt by one guy “disrespecting” them with a patch

The shooting threat isn't part of the insignia. It was a warning on pretty much all military and transport vehicles in the sandbox.

I felt it was a little aggressive for a casual rider but figured I might be in the minority.

Thanks. I might use the one without the text on it, as it could be considered threatening and given how snowflake filled our society is....I don't want to be annoyed by other people's inability to think.

I say go for it. It's been over 40 years since I served and I knew what it meant. I'm sure anyone who served anywhere in the Middle East will know, appreciate and get a chuckle out of it. Those are the folks you'll wear it for. Fuq the snowflakes.

guess he’s old-school, found him in a woodworking newsletter from 11/2018, but no website ... used his AOL e-mail with my patch ...

here’s his Twitter:
https://mobile.twitter.com/pinz711

ordered 10 big patches for $550 ... had a digital art file ...

call it my “bird poo” patch since that’s what it looks like from further that 10 feet ... our tattoo artist member Barnaby designed it, close as I’ll ever get to my own tattoo ...

have fun with your patch project, looks super fun ...
