The Meaning Behind the Patch

The shape represents my old outfit: The 2nd Battalion 4th Marines “The Magnificent Bastards"

The Scarlet (Red) and Gold are Marine Colors

The Blue represents not only the waters we have crossed and fought in but being true blue to our country

The Purple represents the Purple Heart

The Red letters represents the blood that has been shed

Yin & Yang represents the balance in life

The Umbrella represents the Lord protecting us and, to help him, the umbrella becomes a protection device

As we get older the canes represent our badge of courage NOT weakness. It gives us support and strength and becomes a formidable protection device when needed
