    Sewing the chevrons onto ABU uniforms ??

    Advertisements
    I wasn't sure where to post this, sorry!

    Does anyone know how much it costs to get chevrons sewn onto an ABU uniform? Does it cost the same at every base, and for every rank?

    We'll probably have to get it done on RAF Lakenheath, and he's sewing on A1C.

    Thanks so much!

    I can't remember but I know when I put my staff stripes on my uniform it wasn't anymore than $10 at the clothing sales at Lakenheath!

    DH gets his patches & stripes sewn on at Eriswell Dry Cleaners right outside Lakenheath's gate 2. They are cheaper than on base.

    about 6 bucks a top - If you take airman off yourself you'll save some time
