I was wondering if there is anywhere I could buy a TDRS-L patch or an NRO-67 patch?

The TDRS-L patch is an official NASA and is not sold by any direct vendors. It is handed out to employees who work on the mission. It is available on secondary markets such as eBay.

The gift shop at the Air Force Space and Missile History Center generally has for sale patches for the latest launch from Cape Canaveral. Sometimes they are of the type given out to workers, other times they are souvenir (even for NASA flights, so if that sort of thing matters to you, be aware).

They have an online gift shop but generally don't list the latest launches. You could try e-mailing them.

I found the decal at the Goddard Space Flight Center gift shop. The decal can be purchased at the visitor center's website.

Are these patches given out to members of the media?

No, usually not here at the Cape/KSC, but sometimes there may be a patch given out during a particular launch coverage to various media reps. More likely — and not always — it would be a decal, and sometimes, perhaps a pin of the mission being represented.

I know the two producers of USAF east coast launch patches. When there is a NASA mission, I distribute/sell them to the visiting NASA spacecraft project/contractor team.

I was able to obtain the ULA NROL-67 AV-045 patch from the Air Force Space and Missile Museum. It seems like they get those patches right before every launch.

However, I am still looking for the NROL-67 payload patch. Where can these be purchased?

Also, for the Delta GPS-IIF-6 launch, the Air Force Space and Missile Museum nor the Launch Complex 26 store has it. Where can these be purchased?

You're not going to like the answer but eBay is the best source. Just have to keep looking.

Does anyone know if a patch for the NROL 35 mission is available? It was launched aboard an Atlas V from Vandenberg last December 12th.
