Patches & Memorabilia

The patches and what nots posted here are from those old ditty bags hanging in the closet or those dust covered boxes in the garage. Send us your patches, emblems and other Valley Joe knick knacks for all to see. Send them e-mail if you can, if not I can scan them and get them back to you. Contact me for my shipping address at
