I was at Kennedys Custom Cycle’s 1st Annual St. Patrick’s Day event- which benefited Warrior Foundation’s Freedom Station, San Diego. This Vet stopped to let me shoot a photo of his patch as he was leaving. I didn’t get to interview him-- but his gear gives us clues- he is an Iraq War Vet per his “Operation Enduring Freedom Veteran” patch, US Navy, wears a Bar & Shield with Middle Eastern script, and wears a patch “JCCS-1”. Translation: Joint CREW (Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare) Composite Squadron 1- Basically a US Navy Squadron of 300 volunteers who brought the Navy’s electronic countermeasures technology & skills to ground personnel with training to detect & combat radio-controlled IED’s. Formed in May 2006 and disestablished in August 2010, the Squadron was awarded the Navy Unit Commendation July 5, 2012, in recognition of the marked reduction in casualties from IED’s as a result of their services.
