I doubt it will generate much in the way of prospecting, but the Liberty Bell patch should be the patch!

No offense meant, but does it make a difference to the target audience? &nbsp;The recruiter mission is acquisitions and our pool usually doesn't know what SSI stands for or the symbolism behind each. &nbsp;Heck, they don't know what we say mean when we say "670-1 violation."<br><br>The recruiting SSI is an issue for recruiters internally. &nbsp;I'm all for them having their unique patch to go along with their badge to go along with my old station commander standing outside without a cover, smoking with both hands in his pockets, and ashing with a twitch of the jaw &amp; lips. &nbsp;As long everyone is happy and we get the best qualified recruits with the best longevity outlooks in order to fill slots as required.
