I am receiving several dozen original USS Tarawa LHA-1 "colored" Eagle of the Sea hat patches. Apparently, they have been stowed away in a box for many, many years! When I get them, I will give you a full report in the private forum members only lounge. I may do a video unboxing. I was contacted yesterday from an anonymous person who wanted to know if I wanted them! Stay tuned, shipmates. Click image for larger version - Name: image.jpg, Views: 40, Size: 47.15 KB

Apparently, you can purchase a Navy ball cap without an emblem and sew this on it. Déjà vu, the early years of Tarawa.

Just another idea I have before the reunion, along with my Tarawa model building. Lol!

It will go good with my original and the Flying Squad patch I want to make into hats. Let me know how much as soon as you find out. Thanks Rick!

You should sell them at the reunion, I'm sure everyone in attendance would want one.
