US Airmen Send Liberal Reporters Into A FRENZY With Their Stylish New Patches!

Share this:

American service members stationed onboard the USS Wasp sent reporters into a frenzy Monday over morale patches bearing the slogan “Make Aircrew Great Again.”

The patches, in addition to the slogan, features the face of a blonde man who bears a loose resemblance to President Donald Trump. They were spotted and highlighted by a number of journalists and Trump critics who covered the president’s visit — first lady at his side — with troops onboard the USS Wasp in Japan.

While Navy veteran Malcolm Nance was correct in referring to the patch as a “novelty” item, his use of the word “unauthorized” was misleading at best. “Morale patches,” worn by many units across all branches of service, are worn at the discretion of the unit’s commander. So while they are not officially sanctioned or “authorized” by the U.S. Navy or the Department of Defense, they are often permitted by the unit’s commander.

This particular morale patch has been in use for at least two years — and has appeared in photographs posted by the DoD’s official Twitter account.

Morale patches like this one are often job-specific and may or may not reflect an inside joke, or something similar, among those attached to the unit.
