Now I get to wear this

. . . instead of the DRF patch.

It's not much of a trade. Now my career field badge looks like the same dark blue smudge everybody else is wearing above his pocket flap. Took long enough for it to happen, too.

At least it's an interservice- and internationally-recognized symbol for what I do. No offense, guys, but Prime BEEF ain't about me.

Farewell, old friend

I'm not supposed to be wearing this anymore. Hard for me to take it off, I've been wearing this since 1986.
