Recent grab bag pick up. Nice Bevo weave. Can anyone one associate with a unit OR did I get a police patch? 3 1/2 inches tall. Plastic sealed back.

Doesn't look Bevo woven to me, just looks computer embroidered.

The only thing that comes to my (Limited) mind would be Civil Air Patrol...New york wing does alot of Emergency response stuff....Ill see what I can find out. Being in CAP myself, ill ask my c/o what he thinks. Im pretty sure he worked this kinda stuff in the MD Wing headquarters during Hurricane Sandy.

I think it's Civil Air Patrol. They call one of their flying missions "Special Ops".

I have to agree with the above, Civil Air Patrol.The 'NEW YORK WING' kind of gives it away.An AF unit wouldn't have that.Plus it look's like a prop plane on the patch.
