This is the new Comanchero Patch, it was designed by CW2 AJ Santiago. It was drawn by hand shortly after the Comancheros crossed the berm into Iraq. Once we returned, it was decided that the drawing would be converted into the new patch. The war hungry Comanchero aircraft in the patch wears 531 on the intermediate section for our lost aircraft of 531 which was lost over Mosul on NOV 15th 2003. We lost 4 Comancheros that night

.

Behind the aircraft is the country of Iraq. The blue oval is an aviation blue. The aircraft wears the Comanchero headgear to include the tassels and large brim. He is equipped with David Clark headphones and two fully locked and loaded M60 machine guns. he also has the Comanchero engine cowling "Tattoo". He is ready at a moments notice to spill the blood of evil do'ers and help those in need of a Comanchero. Enjoy the new patch! CW2 Aj Santiago
