MSM 5-01-11 Patch

MSM wanted to class it up since it seemed guaranteed there were going to be a lot of shot in the face kind of designs so here is something you might actually be able to wear to work. 5-01-2011 is the date we finally hunted down ol' Osama Bin Laden (USA date) and this patch is a reminder to those that may harm us. Symbolism wise there are the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and PA Keystone in the middle to represent the Flight 93 crash site. Geronimo was the code name for Bin Laden.
As for the KIA term, not everyone is going to agree with me, but I think the code message shows professional restraint, much like that of the operators who completed the mission. The KIA usage has nothing to do with respect and is all about keeping on task with deceiving the enemy, ready for the next fight.
"After a 40-minute search of the compound, punctuated by firefights, bin Laden was dead, and the cryptic "Geronimo-E KIA" code sent relief through the White House. E stood for enemy and KIA for killed in action." -ABC News
3" x 1.4", Hook velcro sewn on the back.

Cool patch December 8, 2013
Reviewer: Richard from Southern AZ, United States  
I've had a few comments about this patch, most positive, and like its conservative nature.  The backing connects the patch securely to my bag.  Not much more I can say about a patch.

Great patch July 14, 2012
Reviewer: Matthew Ware from Birmingham, AL United States  
Good quality patches are hard to come by, but these are top notch. The embroidery is crisp which really makes these stand apart from many of the others that I've bought. The hook side of the velcro that comes pre-sewn on the patch is sized properly and the stitching is sewn right up to the edge so there is none of that annoying curl that you get after wearing it for a while. A bit more expensive than others, but you'll be happy with it. Just remember you get what you pay for! (and shipping was stupid fast, as always)
