What is the down and dirty for getting a support person a combat patch from my unit. This soldier has been working with us for over a month in support of our operations and I feel like he should be commended for his efforts in keeping us mission ready.

It sounds like the more appropriate gesture would be to recommend this Soldier for an Impact AAM or ARCOM that he can actually wear and receive points toward promotion.

Has to be attached to a company or larger unit by Order while in a qualifying AO. Otherwise his unit SSI will be his patch if he meets the qualifications. FWTSSI are not meant to be awards for operations support, actual ribbons and medals are intended for that.

See AR 670-1, Para 21-17. It tells you everything you need.
