    Very cool! I can see that his nametape and US ARMY tape are both theatre made, probably in Iraq.

    Sure. The first picture you see here are some US made standard tapes.

    The next one is a tape I had made at COB Speicher in Iraq just this past November.

    As you can see, the letters are choppier, and the embriodery has just more of a primitive look. Also, the base (what the patch is made on) is different than a standard one, and a few of the theatre made tapes have black velcro instead of that greenish tannish. In the picture you can see this choppiness on both tapes, but the rank is hard to determine. Hope this helps.
