Hope this post finds everyone doing well. Just updated the website this morning with some Killer Vietnam War groups and insignia:

 
 
Including this really nice wartime uniform group named to LTC Baldwin. LTC Baldwin was a highly decorated Special Forces soldier and was the recipient of 2 Silver Stars, 6 Purple Hearts, 4 Bronze Stars for Valor, 5 Air Medals and many more awards during his long career. LTC Baldwin saw combat in Korea with the 187th Regimental Combat Team. Vietnam War as an Advisor and MACV-SOG Area Commander Khe Sahn during the Battle of Lang Vei.
 
The Group:
 
Tan dress shirt has all direct embroidery color insignia. Second award Combat Infantryman Badge, Master Parachutist Wing with Combat Jump Star and South Vietnamese Parachute Instructor (sometimes called a HALO) Badge. LTC rank and Infantry branch insignia at collars.
 
His South Vietnam Airborne Beret and plaque.
 
Loose off the uniform are his metal South Vietnamese HALO wing and a Montagnard bracelet. Lastly, in the background is the framed award certificate for the aforementioned badge. The badge was awarded in 1963 and the certificate was framed in Thailand.
 
Thanks for looking!

Good Morning,
 
ODA-1224 Team Patch - Das Dicke Ende kommt Noch! - The worst is yet to come! Which pays homage to the First Special Service Force. During WWII the Force had cards printed up with the unit's insignia on them and the words Das Dicke Ende Kommt Noch! or "The worst is yet to come" printed in red ink down the right side which the Force would leave on the bodies of dead Germans.
 
I just updated the Cold War - Global War On Terror (GWOT) section on the website with over 980 original US Special Forces ODA (actual insignia received by the Team), MARSOC, SEAL, PJ, SOF, theater made Afghan and Iraqi patches.
 
Here's a link to the website: http://www.botrmilitaria.com
 
The Uniform section has been updated with original SOF modded uniforms, rare/original Afghan and Iraqi uniforms etc.....
 
My table at this year's SOS will be 90% GWOT and 10% WWII - Vietnam War Airborne and Elite Unit items. Hope to see a lot of modern collectors at this years show.
 
Feel free to email me if there is anything in particular that you are looking for.

Good Morning,

 

Just updated all areas of the website. A lot of great insignia, uniforms, headgear and kit.

 

Some of the theater made Special Forces Shoulder Sleeve Insignia currently listed on the website. These Special Forces Shoulder Sleeve Insignia belonged to a career Special Forces soldier and were picked up on his travels during OIF OEF. Almost all are Iraqi made, some Afghan and several Saudi versions.

A rare ODA - 174 1st Special Forces Group patch. This ODA - 174 patch was made in Mosul for the Detachment in 2006.

 
There are currently over 400 original Special Forces ODA patches listed on the website. These are the actual insignia designed for and received by the Detachments.
 
 
For those of you interested in this area/era of Special Forces collecting Gary Perkowski long awaited US Army Special Forces Team History and Insignia 1975 to the Present book will be available this month. 
 
This book chronicles the history, training, and operations of United States Army Special Forces, including never before published photos and insignia that were designed and worn by the men of the United States Army Special Forces. The modern United States Army Special Forces was formed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, on 19 June 1952. Special Forces have served in every major and numerous minor conflicts the United States military has been involved in since their inception. During and after these operations, individual Teams had unique insignia produced to commemorate their operations.

I hope this post finds everyone doing well.

 

Just wanted to let everyone know that every section of the website has been updated. 

 

For the Post 1975 Special Forces insignia collectors - I have re worked the GWOT section of the website. Each Special Forces Group has it's own tab/section making it much easier to navigate and search for patches that you might be interested in/looking for.

 

I will be at the upcoming OVMS show in Wilmington Ohio next week November 3 - 4, 2017. I hope to see a lot of you at the show!

Just finished redesigning/updating the entire website. You will find that it is much better (IMO) as you can load all the patches/items in each section by utilizing the "Load More" button on the bottom of each page. This allows you to scroll up and down to see all the items in a section. 

You can also move the cursor over the patch/item once you have selected it which will allow you use a magnifier to see all the details of the patch, insignia, item.
