Don't really collect them per se, but I do have a flight jacket somewhere done up as if it were from a member of the US Navy's Jolly Rogers fighter squadron, when they were still VF-84 aboard the USS Nimitz (as opposed to being VF-103 now).

Most of my patches are from local law enforcement departments. I also have some military patches but my main hobbie is getting LEO and Firefighter patches.

I'll post pictures this coming weekend.
