USAFSS Patch
with Original Colors


You've been looking for it ... you've been asking for it ... but, just couldn't find it - until now!

USAFSS Patch Click to enlarge

Until now, the only Air Force Security Service patch available for sale on the Internet had the faded, washed out powder blue and pale yellows that came later - but, just not the original, crisp, brightly colored USAFSS patch that we once wore proudly.

Finally, a high-quality, embroidered USAFSS patch with true original colors is now available in two popular sizes -

  • Small = 2 5/8 inches high (perfect for hats), and
  • Large = 4 inches high (shirt pocket size).

     Small Patch ... $5 (free shipping)
     Large Patch ... $6 (free shipping)

    Proceeds from the sale of this item go toward supporting the ongoing costs associated with supporting veteran websites.

    One side of this coin shows the USAF Security Service Shield over the Elephant Cage (FLR 9 Antenna), and is circumscribed with the early unit designations: 1st RSM, 6921st RGM, 6989th RSM, and 6920th Scty Gp.

    The reverse shows "Johnson Air Station" (former home of the 1st RSM), and a radio receiver framed in lightning bolts (much like you may have used - less the lightning bolts, of course). Below that are images of Mt. Fuji and a Torii gate - well-recognized icons of the country of Japan. At the bottom is the inscription MISAWA AB JAPAN over which the Operation Eyesignt emblem can be found.

    USAFSS Ring
    New Item

    There is a guy down in Georgia - retired Navy - who hand makes all sorts of rings from stainless steel nuts. He simply grinds away everything that doesn't look like a ring!

    Gordon Spurlock does some remarkable work and can provide the USAFSS ring very much like what you see here. Because they are all hand made, no two rings are exactly identical.

    Here's how to get yours -

    1. Have a jeweler size your finger for a wide band ring.
    2. Order your ring directly from Gordon (email nutgrinder@comcast.net or phone 912-265-9591).
    3. If you're happy with your ring when it arrives, send Gordon a check for $105 - otherwise, return the ring.

    Click to enlarge

    Don LaChappell of JDL Graphics, Inc. has been working with the 6918th, 6924th, and the 6927th organizations to custom create not only hats and shirts, but coffee mugs, name badges, mouse pads, window decals, bumper stickers, and on and on.

    The hat shown here is just one of the designs that Don can do. This one is navy blue, but is also available in Green (Trick 1), Blue (Trick 2), Maroon (Trick 3), and Black (Trick 4). Be sure to enlarge the image to get a better look at the detail.

    Did I mention reasonable pricing?


    $8.95Trick Hat as shown
    $12.95Trick Hat, custom embroidering sides and/or back
    $2.50Shipping

    I had Don do my own Trick hat and, not only was he able to embroider the tour years/unit on one side and hometown/state on the other, but he put my name on the back, both in English and in Japanese!   Can you believe it??

    To order your hat today - or just to browse some of the USAFSS items he carries - either contact them directly through their website ...

    Operation Eyesight Lighter
    New 2002 Reproduction

    Many of you who served in Misawa will remember Operation Eyesight, headed and sponsored by the men and officers on The Hill.
    2002 OES Lighter
    Click to enlarge
    This most worthy project, first launched in the very early 1960's, raised the funds needed to restore the eyesight of many Japanese children who, due to the dust and impurities of tatami floor mats, had lost their vision and would otherwise most likely have remained blind for life.

    The Zippo lighter is a faithful reproduction, inscribed with Operation Eyesight, Misawa A.B. Japan on the cap with the Operation Eyesight logo and slogan, That Others May See, on the body.

    Any proceeds from this item go either to Operation Eyesight, or to provide a portion of the ongoing costs associated with supporting veteran websites.

    Note: This is a closeout item - at last count, only 26 remained in stock. Get yours before they're gone.

     Zippo Lighter ... $10 (free shipping)
