Jay, your missile badge collection is growing! The 569th SMS patch looks in great condition, early 60's and Titan I so early ICBM-also used for some space flights. Very cool patch.

Yes, those are usually over 5".  Great piece of Cold War history.

Jay V,

 

Awesome display.

 

Just a suggestion, something I've learned mounting medals for veterans where I work.

 

Use a picture frame with already cut matting. Also use felt with an adhesive background mounted over cardboard. The insignia is then mounted with Velcro.

 

The combination allows the display elements to just jump out to the viewer.

 

Geo

Great patches. 447th, Grand Forks.  Minuteman II & later Minuteman III ICBMs. Strategic Missile Squadron designation until 1991 then became Missile Squadron from 91 to 98 when it was deactivated.

Thanks Jay. The difference in wreath design is what got my attention. The background on the basic version is similar to the japanese made badges.
