Re: Catoosa event September 28th -30th

Start getting your 509th impression ready fellas we will be using them for this event.

Re: Catoosa event September 28th -30th

Does anyone know the best place to get 509th patches? Also, I've been looking into repainting my helmet but I cant find a consistent gingerbread man style. Some are red, some are white, and some are really fat short little gingerbread men. Do we all want to try and have the same style helmet markings?


Re: Catoosa event September 28th -30th

I think some of us have them as yellow and orange...really its your preference. I know the signified different companies but I don't have a list of exact colors...I think a lot used what ever paint they could find.
