Sailor Humor Patches


Recommended Posts

The Sailor is a Unique being, time spent at sea isolated from all but other Sailors creates a twisted kind of humor.

I am sure we all have examples of this in patches, so here is the place to post them.

For me this is one of my favorite pairs:

Fleet Tactical Support Squadron 24

Not sure if these all qualify as humor, but I think so.

Both of these are on a jacket that belonged to a sailor
