This was my DESRON 13 patch while serving in USS Bradley, FF-1041 from '75-'79 Not as nice as my Dads, and bought in the ships store, Do not remember what brand, most likely Gemsco. As I recal, they supplied pretty much all ships jacket patches then.

here is a great pair East Coast (26) and West Coast (31) The " Mod Squad" label was given during the Zumwalt reign as CNO these two DESRONS had officers assigned to CO and XO positions who were a pay grade below what the normal pay grade for that billet would have been, so if a DE's CO normally would have been a Commander a Mod Squad CO would be a LT Commander. The thought was to give junior officers more leadership responsibility. These are the sellers pictures I don't have them in hand yet.

A well worn and used foreign made DESRON 21 patch from a Navy divers personal collection (he was a tin can sailor prior to dive school)

. Just noticed this one! My Dad was EM1 on Perkins '62-'63. Interestingly, when our son was in "A" School in Pensacola, his best buddy's grand paw was EM2 on Perkins at the same time. My dad remembered him.
