Anyone know what this is? I was told the writing is Farsi.

Thanks!

Hi,

 

Your armband is NOT Iranian as the writing is not Farsi, but is Arabic. The armband translates as "Military Police/ Private Security" which could be taken as "personal security" like working as a bodyguard, or some other form of special, focused security.

 

It should be noted that in Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries that high ranking officers and government officials would often have a security detail assigned to them for their personal and family's safety.
