Section NE-2A 2016 Project Leap Staff Patch

Still in clean up mode, a daunting task, and I’m finally at the bottom of the Section NE-2A issues. This is a relatively recent one for the Section NE-2A 2016 Project LEAP, the Staff version. Project LEAP was held on January 31, 2016 at the Connecticut Fire Academy in Suffield, CT

I had previously written about the Participant Version here.

It does not say Staff, but can be distinguished from the Participant Version by the reversed colors.

This is a need of mine if anyone has one available.

“[T]he germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body … working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped from the States, and the government of all be consolidated into one.” —Thomas Jefferson (1821)
