Air Force Bronies Can Bomb Your @$$ if You Mock Them

This is an actual class badge from Vance Air Force Base in Oklahoma, once again proving that there's nothing unmanly about showing your love for pink cartoon horses. And if you say there is, they can probably kick your ass or drop a bomb on you.

An Equestria Daily commenter named charelz is being quoted everywhere as confirming it's for real (though the website linked above looks legit too). Anyway, here, let's quote him again anyway...

I couldn't take pictures because it would have embarrassed my stepson if I got all fanboy squee in front of his buddies. (He is in 14-04; this is 14-05's patch and they were present for the Track Select for 14-04 where trainee pilots are told what kind of planes they're going to be flying - my kid could have taken T-38 fighter track but he wants to be a commercial pilot so he picked T-1s which is the transport/tanker track.) Also the impression I got is that they vote on the patches and they have to get approved by the brass. This was their third try, so I don't know how much was genuine and how much was irony but there was at least one non-brony who straight up refused to wear it and I overhead another complaining to his mom about it. But the flight instructor (who was a captain) was wearing it and he had no problems with his masculinity...

For Mom, country and Apple Jack...

Those of you regulars who have served - would you have worn this with pride?
