Hey Rich, Not a problem. I'm with Sound Beach Vol Fire Dept in Greenwich, CT. I just sent out the last Sound Beach patch I had today. What other CT patches are you looking for? I would be glad to help! I am heading around to a few local depts tomorrow to scout out some patches. Let me know what your looking for and I'll get one out to you!
