On the topic ozzie brought up I just have to ask him one thing:\

You say the people who worked hard to earn the right to wear those badges will get upset. Just because one wears the badge doesn't mean he gets to do the work involved with bearing the patch and it would only hold merit while a serving member is on active duty. If an impressionist wants to portray a certain look then that patch can be the difference between a generic infantry soldier and an advanced SF member, thus negating any attempt to portray the appreciation for portraying the SF instead of a generic soldier.

Personally, I'd be flattered if someone who is part of a milsim group (like airsoft) thinks so highly of that group that he would go the extra mile to locate spare patches of certain SF units as an homage. Imitation is the biggest form of flattery. Until someone who has actually served in an SF unit has a problem with someone kitting up (patches and all) then its a non-issue.
My trust is in whiskey, in weed and in Slayer, its GODDAMN ELECTRIC - Pantera
