Patch Drop & Fundraiser
BCS x F19
The F19 Foundation is a 501c3 dedicated to improving the support available to 5th Bn 19th SFG members here in our home state of Colorado. These limited USA made leather patches feature the 5/19 battalion logo overtop a western filigree background. 100% of the proceeds will go to the F19 Foundation and their efforts.
The main reason BCS jumped on the opportunity to fundraise for this organization is the local benefit. In addition to their OCONUS responsibilities, 5/19 regularly assists local efforts in disaster relief. Colorado experienced unprecedented flooding in 2013, the home I grew up in at 8220' above sea level flooded. 5/19 was out doing roving patrols and setting up TCPs in an effort to locate stranded souls and prevent looting. During the 2019 bomb cyclone, 5/19 was helping stranded motorists get to safety. I could go on but I think you get the picture.
There are two ways to get this patch. For most of you, that will be on our website. The patches will go live on 5/19/23 at 1200 MDT. A number of them will be allocated for in-person sale at the 2nd annual 5/19 day. This event is open to current and former unit members and their family/friends. It will be a time to reconnect and strengthen social networks.
Don't be late.
