WELCOME TO ERIC'S USAF PATCHES
My name is Eric Bosch and I would like to welcome you to my site. I have been collecting USAF patches for about 24 years starting in the mid 1980's when I went to school near Soesterberg AB/Camp New Amsterdam here in Holland . After school we often went to the base and watched the 32nd Tactical Fighter Squadron perform their day to day F-15 operations. At the spotters area we watched the guy's trade patches and at one time pilots from the 33rd TFW on TDY were handing out patches thru the fence and about that time the “itch” started. I started writing to the units, trading with other collectors and if the finances allowed it, I would buy a couple. So over the years my collection grew to the current number of about 19.000, mostly bright colored, patches. I don't really like subdued patches but then again, some units never had bright colored ones made.
Note that all the patches are for display purpose only and absolutely not for trade or sale. If you are looking for a particular patch please look at my trade list or contact me. If you need a high resolution scan of a patch or have a question or comment just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will see what I can do to help you in any way.
Patch donations are most welcome and will add greatly to my collection and website. Please contact me at the email address mentioned above if you have any patches to donate. Full credit will be given!!
Please have a look at my “Unknown” section and see if you recognize any of the patches. If you have any information on the unit, base, time frame, type of aircraft etc.. of a patch that is shown in this section, please send me an email.
