Howard County, Maryland Police Patch
Howard County, MD c. 2020
In the first half of 2020, the U.S. Department of State made extraordinary efforts to bring home more than 98,000 American citizens stuck overseas as the COVID-19 pandemic sparked quarantines and canceled flights. This patch was handed to the U.S. Ambassador in Cameroon, Peter Barlerin, by an evacuee of the COVID-19 pandemic while he was in the process of boarding the 1st evacuation flight from Cameroon. It was given as an impromptu token of thanks from a firefighter from Maryland for the embassy’s efforts to get him home.
