MCB Camp Butler Patch -No Hook and Loop

A 3.5 to 4.5 inches patch of the MCB Camp Butler Patch -No Hook and Loop.

Marine Corps Base Camp Smedley D. Butler (or simply Butler Marine Base) is a United States Marine Corps base located in the Japanese prefecture of Okinawa. It was named after Marine Corps Major General and twice Medal of Honor recipient Smedley D. Butler.

Installations
Camp Smedley D. Butler is actually a collection of facilities and satellite installations spread throughout Okinawa. Camp Smedley D. Butler was formerly called Camp or Fort Buckner, named for Army General Simon Bolivar Buckner Jr., who commanded ground forces in the invasion of Okinawa and was killed in the last days of the battle. The renaming of Buckner to Butler occurred after most U.S. Army troops left Okinawa, and the base was transferred to the USMC. It is ironic that a foreign military base was named after General Butler as he strongly believed that the military should be limited, by law, to operating within 200 miles of the coastline.
