This was probably his reunion type patch as it wasn't made until the 1980's or later.

Yes, quite probably as he does attend several reunions. In fact, he just returned from one.
I met him years ago and I had known him for at least three years before he casually mentioned something about having been in Vietnam, it was only then that I found out that he had served with the S/F. I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised, he is now in his 70s and still tough as nails.

Lt. Colonel Robert Jones, better known as "Colonel Rob", or simply "Rob" to me (and our small group of constant companions), was a very dear friend of mine and prior CO of this group. His passing was a difficult one. He was a truly GREAT guy! What stories he had to tell, and what a deep resonating voice he had to tell them with in between deep puffs from his ever present cigar. He was a tough old bird but when he smiled or laughed he'd light up a room. Piss him off though and you'd know about it. He never suffered fools. I will always miss him. He was a real man's man to be sure but he also had a heart of gold and would go above and beyond for his friends. He was one of the last to be buried below ground in Arlington and one day I hope to be able to visit him there.

Attached is a set of OG107's he gave me which he wore in Viet Nam. We were the same height and I actually broke the starch in them and worn them over the last Veterans day holiday to honor him.

May he rest in peace!
