We always gave the "Puddle Pirates" a hard time, but we always respected them. Worked with them many times and always considered them good, tough Sailors. Great patches.

Great patches shown so far. Here is my humble group of Vietnam era Coast Guard items. 2 Vietnamese hand sewn patches, 3 Japanese made patches , 2 Viet made beercan DI's and a Viet made beercan plaque piece.
