USAF Pilot's scarf

Recommended Posts

Here is something I have not seen alot of, and I don't know if any one is interested but I will put it out there. This is a USAF scarf that was given to me by a pilot from the 24th TAC Air Support Sqd. while I was deployed to Howard AFB in Panama for Operation Kindle Liberty 1985. I was part of a USN Helicopter Mine Countermeasure Squadron (HM-16 flying RH-53Ds) that took part in the operation. The 24th TASS flew A-37s and hosted us for the duration. When we left I traded my Squadron patch for this scarf. Does the USAF still wear these, and does anyone have some more examples of some scarves? Thanks for looking.

Yes, the Air Force still hands out scarves, but their wear depends on squadron policy. I never wore the ones I was given (read: wear was optional) but had we a colorful scarf like yours, I might have decided differently - that one of yours is a real winner. I wish I had a shirt of the same pattern and colors!


PS. The Air Force scarf is always a source of humor for our Navy brethren.
