Does anyone recognize these current USMC patches?  The design is an Eagle, Globe, and Anchor superimposed on a palm tree.  I assume OEF/OIF though I suppose it could be related to 29 Palms.

I am fairly certain these were either Iraqi or Afghan shop souvenir patches. Patches stateside were never authorized and seldom seen. Most of those were limited to Airwingers, darn sure not Infantry Bns. My times in Iraq you could visit the Haji shops and purchase patches like the ones you possess. They would offer sewing with similar designs and apply it directly to the Boonie covers.  Only theater patches obtained and authorized were Name tapes and Flak jacket identification. Just my opinion though.

Thanks for the ID!  Just curious - what is your source for this?  I tried Googling and couldn't find anything.
