Military Patches - A Part of our National Identity
The roots of bikers, and, by extension, the patches they wear, go back to the Second World War. American GIs, returning to their tame civilian lives, soon began to miss the thrills, excitement and sense of brotherhood and shared adventure they had grown so used to during wartime. To recreate some of the heightened emotions of impending danger, they turned their motorcycles into symbols of power and freedom, forming groups to try to recapture the sense of adventure for which they yearned. As a symbol of their fraternity, they adopted patches as an outward display of identity and solidarity.
Military patches and insignia are a sensitive part of every country's cultural history. They cover every aspect of a country's military and law enforcement services and invariably instill a feeling of national pride in the wearer. The United States Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Air Force patches are some of the most striking military patches around. Just as war has become a part of modern life, so military patches have evolved and Iraq and Afghanistan veteran and freedom patches are growing rapidly in number and popularity as demand increases. And it is no longer only bikers who choose to wear these patches.
Military patches have been a part of the recognized uniform of the armed forces since the 1600s and they have always been worn with a sense of pride and honor as a distinction of the service. Because they are instantly recognizable by others and make strong statements about the wearer, it is hardly surprising that biker groups (amongst many others) have adopted them for the same purpose. Whether they are whimsical, colorful or stark and simple, patches serve a unique role in modern society. And they are almost certainly here to stay!
