USMC Hook and Loop patches are a way for identifying members of the Marine Corps, MCJROTC and civilians serving with MC units. The patches help to distinguish between different ranks, units or squadrons, and they also help to show pride in one’s division or battalion. In addition, they are used to show support for a particular campaign, as to rise funds for our military veterans. Whether you’re looking to identify your enlisted men or officers, reproduce iconic or historical WWII patches with the aim of selling them to patch collectors, Sienna Pacific is the perfect choice to go with.

Do Marines Have Unit Patches?
While it is true that shoulder sleeve insignia (SSI) were largely used by U.S. Marines ground unit troops during World War II as a way to differentiate from Army Units and that they were considered no more useful after the end of the war, being eliminated on January 1, 1948, there are exceptions to this. As specified in page 160, point 7006 of the USMC Uniform Regulation (publicly released in 2018), officers can wear “no more than two CNO-/CMC-approved unit/squadron patches.” Additionally, on point 7016 concerning SHORE PARTY DESIGNATION, it says “Per the commander’s direction, 0481 and 0402 Marines assigned to units possessing a landing support mission are authorized to wear red patches on the utility uniform”. Therefore, while units no longer communicate their branch through SSI patching as they did during WWII, there are still circumstances in which patches are worn in order to identify Marine soldiers with their unit.
What’s a red patcher in the marines? / Why do some marines have red patches?
As anyone who has served in the Marines knows, clear communication and identification are essential for success in any mission. This is especially true during landings, when confusion can quickly lead to disaster. To help avoid mix-ups, the USMC established the use of red patches to distinguish Marines in support units from those in the infantry. This way, everyone knows where they are supposed to be and what their role is. The red patches are also prescribed in the MARINE CORPS UNIFORM REGULATIONS as follows: “Per the commander’s direction, 0481 and 0402 Marines assigned to units possessing a landing support mission are authorized to wear red patches on the utility uniform.” By following these simple regulations, we can help ensure that our troops are always operating at peak efficiency.
What Plate Carrier do the Marines Use?
The United States Marine Corps is always looking for ways to improve the armor and protection of its officers. In 2020, the Marines began testing the third generation of bulletproof vests. The first generation of plate carriers used by the Marines was called the Modular Tactical Vest (MTV). This one was supplanted in 2011 by the Scalable Plate Carrier (SPC) used during the Afghanistan War. Each new version is lighter, more comfortable, and more effective than its predecessor. The latest generation of plate carrier being tested by the Marines is even more advanced, offering greater protection and flexibility for those who wear it into combat.
What is an E8 in the Marine Corps?
E-8 is the eighth enlisted paygrade in the United States Marine Corps, with two distinct ranks: first sergeant and master sergeant. As a first sergeant, you would serve as a senior enlisted advisor, assisting the commanding officer in matters of discipline, administration, and the morale and welfare of the unit. As a master sergeant, you would provide technical leadership as an occupational specialist in your specific Military Occupational Specialty (MOS). Each rank requires different levels of experience, knowledge, and expertise, but both are essential to the success of any Marine Corps unit.

This goes some times in the upper left and some others on the lower right corner. 2.- Blood type: this is by far the most critical information needed and it goes almost always in the upper right. 3.- Rank: commonly goes on the lower left corner. 4.- Last Name: usually put on the lower right corner of the desing.
