The best I can figure out is:

 

지나믿갑너다

 

Without spaces this translates to 'ji na midgab neoda' or 'I believe you' or 'I believe it.'  Can also be 'GI trust you all,' 'Through trust you' or 'Through trust all.'  Or, on the flip side, 'I cannot believe it.'  It all depends on the spaces between the character groups.

 

It's hard to read the characters since they are not only stylized (like written script) but embroidered.  IF my guess is close it has something to do with belief or trust.  My guess is a unit motto if it follows the 'trust' idea or a novelty kind of patch if it goes along with 'can't believe it.'

Thanks Rob. That helps with another area for further research.
