I thought the 13 on sniper patches referred to the cost of each round.

You could be right on that one. Maybe just a morale patch ? Any other comments or ideas on this one.

Moral patch, but for whom? Crossed arrows is symbolic for SF. The Japanese torii gate for the 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry. The unit's nickname is the Iron Rakkasans and they are part of the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

This is a 1st Bn 1st SFG(A) SFODA patch (which also uses the torii gate design in their patches due to the Okinawa connection). The "13" probably refers to the last two digits of their SFODA team designation 1113. In this case, it would be a patch for SFODA 1113, A Co, 1st Bn, 1st SFG(A). Great patch! And if you don't need it, I know a good place for it 😉
