We are in the process of constructing patch boards here at VBFD #8. If anyone out there would be so kind and wish to donate their patch, we would sincerely appreciate it. We would return the favor and send one of our Company patches to you, if you would like one. We already have the following patches from outside of our area: FDNY (standard), FDNY Rescue Services, Rescue 5, Squad 252, E54/L4, Clark County, Las Vegas, Houston #8, Montreal, Chesapeake VA. Send the patches to the address below:

My son was a USMC FF in Iraq, does that interest you. I have some of his patches from Al-Asad and Fallujah. Don't worry he came home OK and is now working near O"Hare :) ;D

Are you interested in patches from the Old Dominion Historical Fire Society (ODHFS) or SPAAMFAA (Society for the Preservation & Appreciation of Antique Fire Apparatus in America?  I can help if you are.

I was transferred to Engine 4 before the patch boards were finished. Please, continue sending patches to the original address. Change the name to Jeff Weigold vs. my name. He's finishing them up and thank you
