Commemorative Envelope and Cloth Uniform Patch for Scud Missiles Launched from Vandenberg AFB

Two items for the price of one! FIRST - This is a postmarked envelope measuring 7 1/2 inches by 4 inches commemorating the first of two foreign-built Scud-B missiles launched in the continental United States from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on November 14, 2002. This was joint operation between the U.S. and Israel, code named "Blue Velvet." The objective of these launches was to learn more about the missile's capabilities. These missiles made up a large part of Iraq's ballistic weapons. During the Gulf War (1990-1991), Iraq fired dozens of Scud missiles against Israel and Saudi Arabia. SECOND - Matching cloth uniform patch commemorating the Blue Velvet program. The combination of the postmarked envelope and the cloth patch would look great together properly framed and hung on a wall. What a fantastic part of international history! 9/24/2021
