Morale patches by their very nature have been kept quiet over the years as units kept out of trouble with regulations.
It’s believed that the current crop of patches got their start from other, older elements.
In WWII, aircraft nose art was a popular way to add a little personalization to a crew.
These art pieces gave the aircraft a life of its own as the face of the always “female” airframe they entrusted their lives to with each mission.
Years later, Velcro made it possible to quickly remove distinctive markings for fliers downed in combat.
The patches got easier to wear selectively as well and offered the wearer a quick way to add or remove a little piece of personal pride.
While the troops in the air seem to have started this idea, the gang on the ground found ways to express themselves as well.
From WWII to the Vietnam War, helmets were also used to creatively include personal markings.
