I finally found a company that quoted me a reasonable price for this one just a few days ago.  Once I get the sample run I will release my source.


Side by side.  See I told it it wasn't too much detail.

FYI- I used Butlerpatches.com  turn around was 20 days, price was 1.69 per patch fully embroidered.  I'm very happy and will most certainly use them in the future.


Yeah well, now that I see that old one I'm even more glad I made the change.

Here is the logo for the Pacific Region Chaplain Service.  It will be made into a patch shortly.

Explanation:

The shape selected was the USAF/CAP Command Shield depicting our culture; belonging to the organization.  The yellow (or) outline speaks of loyalty to our mission and the honor that is bestowed upon the appointment to the CAP Chaplain Service

The crest is that of the USAF/CAP Chaplain service.  This speaks of our mission.  The rays of yellow (or) depict our pursuit of excellence in what we do and the wisdom that is shared to those to whom we serve. The hands of silver (argent) represent charity and faith - that which we offer to those we serve.   The field of blue (azure) speaks of devotion and strength.  The black (sable) outline depicts dignity and determination.  Attributes in which we conduct our service.  The banner in white (argent) represents integrity and purity.  While based on the CAP motto, "Semper Vigilans", additional words were added to form the motto of the PCR Chaplain Service: "Semper Vigilans ad Dei Gloriam" ("Always Vigilant for the Glory of God") which reminds us of the "what", the "how" and the "why" of our ministry.  These words are in black (sable) as well as the banner's outline.  Again signifying the determination and dignity in which we are called and committed to serve.  The six stars of blue (azure) and white (argent) represent the six wings that comprise the Pacific Region.  Again the colors speak of devotion and integrity. Notice that Wing abbreviations have been removed symbolizing our collective service as a team rather than individual Wings, emphasizing our service together.  The crest, stars, and motto are in a field of red (gules) which depicts passion.  It is a passion for service to God and to others that motivates us to perform our mission.

Finally, the scroll is a field of blue (azure) and letters of white (argent) that corresponds to the six stars displays our name: Pacific Region Chaplain Service.

The logo speaks of our culture, our mission and our commitment to serve God in our service to others.  That service is done in a spirit of loyalty to one another and in devotion to the One who called us to serve.  We do so as people of integrity, in an attitude of vigilance, determined to pursue excellence so that we can provide quality service to others and in doing so, bring glory to God.

I think you've got a FIRST there, Chappie.
If available, count me in for a half-dozen when you get them made up!

The scoll lettering needs to be fixed a little IMHO. More like the lettering in the center where it is more square to the ribbon. Good looking otherwise.

 This may sound like an odd choice of words, but that's a pretty patch. Very nicely done.

+1 makes the words look natural, instead of all scrunched together.

-1 I think it looks fine as-is, but if anything the tips of the letters to center should be more pointed, not less.

Where will the PCR chaplain patch be worn since it is not actually a unit patch?

Chappie

The patch will be sewn on polo shirts that the Chaplain Service Region Staff College staff wear as casual wear in our informal meetings.  It is also a commemorative patch.

This one approved just this afternoon...



Base Design:
Standard "disk with rockers" as per an emblem for a non-headquarters unit.

Background (sky):

USAF blue as per standard. Also represents the waters of Lake Michigan which boarders the East side of Lake County as well as the Great Lakes Naval Station where the Squadron meets.

Motto:

Ships Wheel:
A derivative of the ship's wheel featured on the insignia of Naval Station Great Lakes - the physical location of Lake County Composite Squadron - intended as an homage to the ongoing support provided by the U.S. Navy to CAP.  Permission for the use of the derivative art is on file.

Is that for the CAP naval division?  (j/k)  ;)  :)

Looks great! Be sure and post the heraldry if one was written up.

Aside from squadron's name, seeing the ship wheel lends me to believe the unit might be near the famous Lake Michigan pier? My IL geography is fuzzy, so the location marker doesn't help, heh....

Hook me up with three if you can! And add a little ching on for the squadron's supply/logistics box.

 My home unit's patch is in production at Butler as I type this; minor changes were made to comply with present-day AF heraldic rules.

That design has become so familiar seeing the computer art version of it for so long! Good to see it finally made it to the loom, and I'm sure your members are pleased.

Would any be available for a donation to the squadron?

I kinda like these *cough* my squadron *cough* ;D




For those of you who don't know, the one on the right is the "subdued" one we use for BDU's.


I have to agree, I think this is the best squadron patch in the world! Though I happen to be bias as I was on the comittee that voted on that design. Unfortunately I left the squadron before the patch was put into production.  That was over 7 years ago. Think you could send me one? ;)

Check this site out. This has quite a large listing of patches that squadrons of the CAP use. If looking for examples or ideas to use, I'm sure you can find something here that could help.
