Morale Patches: A Military History

Military Patches 
Military patches have long been symbols of a soldier's standing, achievements, affiliation, and rank. They're the proud badges that decorate any uniform – whether for the Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard or Air Force. But you don't have to be enlisted to enjoy military patches. That's the beauty of custom patch making. The Patch Factory makes patches for everyone!

Military Patches – History of Embroidered Badges
Although military patches might seem like a traditional part of the uniform, they only first appeared around World War I, when General John J. Pershing gave permission for their use. By World War II, the patches had become popular and were viewed as emblems of pride among personnel. Today, military patches are common on all uniforms, with designs that represent individual units and promote camaraderie among divisions.

Military Patches – Treasured Collectables 
Enlistees and civilians alike treasure military patches as collectible items. Some leave them sewn on original uniforms, others encase them in glass displays, on shelves, or present them in a leather-bound album. The patriotic collector has countless ways to flaunt his or her military patches.
