I have other (13 total) listings of vintage patches -- please check out the other listings. First, about the patches: Both my mother and father were in the military (where the met - Fort Ord, 1951) and they collected these patches. My
father is a retiree, served 25 years, retired 1973 (both enlisted and OCS, retired LTC). I was born at Ft. Riley and I myself am a veteran (XVIII ABC -- AATW!). Additionally, my uncle (my namesake) was killed at Ft. Knox, Kentucky in January 1958 in a tank training accident (along with MSG Oliver) and it's my understanding that still to this day
that range is named in their honor -- McFarland-Oliver Tank Range. I believe, am positive, that some of these
patches were also collected/acquired by him. He did 2-3 tours as armored tanker/commander in the Korean
War. He was a MSG by age 25. My father is both a Korean War vet and was in Okinawa too, as well as Vietnam as an Infantry Officer. From late-50s, early 60s we were in Germany (Frankfurt and Augsburg).
I offer this information as provenance to the authenticity of these patches. I remember "playing" with this large can of patches (and there are medals/badges etc. forthcoming) over 50 years ago -- with some being added up to 1973. I believe some are WWII vintage but cannot be certain. For sure they are Korean War era to VN era. I WILL STAND BY THESE PATCHES AND IF NOT COMPLETELY SATISFIED WILL REFUND ANY BUYER WHO IS NOT PLEASED. I will be listing many more lots in the next 30-45 days.
The patches in this lot are: (10 TOTAL)
1- 6th Service Command; 2- Replacement and School Command; 3- AGF Replacement Depot; 4- Army Service Forces; 5- Army Amphibious Command; 6- 508th Regimental Combat Team (RCT); 7- Military Assistance Command, Viet Nam; 8- 9th Logistical Command; 9- 7th Logistical Command; 10- US Military Academy/West Point
All in very nice shape overall, 4/5 have minimal thread remnants.
