There were many patches made up by ships or individual departments and divisions to commemorate individual cruises or events.  These patches were very short runs in many cases (I had 11 patches made up for my guys on the St. Louis and lost the one I had :()  Here is the only one I have, It is from my '73-'74 cruise aboard USS Kitty Hawk, CV-63.  Never got any more, not sure why, wish I had now of course, but such is life.

Cool, there was a Hawk cruise patch I passed on for my second cruise.  We went to the Indian Ocean, and were the first carrier into the Persian Gulf in '75 I think it was.  We hosted the Shaw of Iran and all that.  They made a patch up, "Kirkseys Rangers" (Captain was Capt. Kirksey).  I passed on the patch because it was $5.  Big money for an E-3 in those days!
