The Volunteers-In-Parks insignia
Here's a pic of the VIP insignia, old and new.
The new style is on the left and the older (and preferred by many volunteers) is on the right. Luckily, I got in on the tail-end of the issue of the old style, which is a richer-looking patch with really nice color, detail, and embroidery. Also that distinctive NPS "arrowhead" is much larger. Guess I'm a traditionalist...or just another ranger wanna be!
By the way, having this patch on my jacket got me free parking at Harper's Ferry today!
