    I was given this patch by someone I knew in Dover, Delaware, right after I signed my USAF enlistment papers in 1974. I haven't seen another one and didn't find one on Google Images. Maybe this is the only one left in existence....LOL!!

    Thanks for coming by.

      What did it mean Bonnie back in the day??
    2. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago
      @Judy - it meant that a person was either coming to the end of their enlistment or retiring. I just got my patch ahead of schedule, LOL!

      Thanks Bonnie......I was just reading about the bottle of Vodka that had to be finished and the ribbon from it had to be worn with the uniform before the enlistment time was up!!!
      Lol Bonnie...did you get to drink your bottle at the beginning of your enlistment??

      If you google for "military short timer items", you will find everything from patches to pins to tee shirts and more. In Vietnam we used a calendar to mark off the days and at the end a deck of cards. You changed the card in your helmet band every day to reflect how many days were left. Short timers have been around forever.
