Yepper 

It shore does look spiffy on his sleeve doesn't it ?

I had one of the Oath Keepers ask me if we were at all concerned about having the connection to the 3%ers be so public.
I told him heck no that a goodly percentage of Oath Keepers already are 3%ers.

It seems like a good match to me. :dontknow:

Thanks CorbinKale  :thumbsup:

Looks great to me, but I'm surprised they are allowed to place non gov. issue patches and insignia on their uniforms. As far as I know, that is not allowed.

It isn't allowed. I am sure it is like most unauthorized acts done by individuals in the military. Out of view of their superiors. Being velcro, they can be switched out quickly if trouble approaches. :) The soldier's philosophy is that it is much easier to ask for forgiveness, than to ask for permission. Harmless, morale boosting activities are mostly ignored unless it is causing a breakdown in discipline or mission effectiveness. My gut tells me that this was done as a photo op, and the troop was not walking around all day with those patches affixed.

If they do get in trouble, they can always appeal to their Oath. They might lose the ensuing debate, but supporting and defending the Constitution is sure to be a mitigating factor.  :laugh:

Uniform standards tend to relax more in combat / hazardous situations.  AR 670-1 is still AR 670-1, and in garrison stateside someone would definitely lay into someone for this.  But when you might die tomorrow, people care a whole lot less about the "small stuff" and the fact that it keeps up morale is WAY more important.  So it's generally overlooked, as long as it's not obnoxious.
