ORIGINAL: This deployment patch was created by USS ENTERPRISE (CVN-65) and AIRWING THREE (CVW-3) for their Mediterranean Deployment. This is one of the more famous (or infamous) designs for the ENTERPRISE's cruise patches. We had one in 1996, but believe there were some prior to ours (since CVN-65 was the first Nuclear Carrier), and most definitely some afterwards, such as this one. I am unsure of the year, but think it was early 2000's. No velcro.
