VAQ-33 Squadron Patches

If you have a Squadron patch other than what we have here, we'd love to get a photo or scan of it! An explanation of it would be nice too! So, if you have "patch pictures" or the patches themselves, please get me a good photo or email the picture to me in gif or jpeg (preferred) format. I'll look them over and post those that I can.
