Here's another reversed SSI I've in my collection, and as you can see on picture, it was used !




So there's definitely more than 2-3 units who used reversed SSI on their DCU !


Here's the normal SSI for comparison :




You can see my collection of desert SSI at this link :




then, you can see there's various variants (reversed or color)

"As you know, you go to war with the Army you have. They're not the Army you might want or wish to have at a later time. You can have all the armor in the world on a tank and it can (still) be blown up..." - Donald Rumsfeld (Camp Buehring, KU - Dec. 8, 2004)

Here is a photo of 1st Cavalry wearing reverse patch. Anyone have a photo of 2nd Infantry soldier wearing reverse patch?




This is a picture of the 2nd Battalion (Mechanized), 7th Cavalry Regiment CO - LTC James Rainey - with his PSD and a Marine Battalion Commander in either An Najaf (September 2004) or Fallujah (November 2004), Iraq. The steely-eyed killer on the left is SSG Sherman, 2-7 Mortar Platoon, one of the finest Mortar Maggots I ever had the privilege of leading.


And yes, I served in 2-7 Cav during this time, commanded HHC for most of our deployment there. I know I still have my one reversed combat patch in my box o stuff.

Strike Hold!!
