To all,

 

I apologize as to if this is not the best placed to post but I figured it was as close as I could get. In the scan you will see a photo of a pair of screwed back (post) USMC insignia with the obvious ACA abbreviation. What is not obvious is what does ACA stand for. I have spent an hour looking to ID as I honestly plan to offer them for sale here on the Forum but want to be educated. I will add that it appears to be enamel behind the EGA. Additionally they are approximately 24mm across in size

 

Thanks in advance

 

Mark

Gator,

The first thing that came to mind was @ss Clown Academy....maybe something someone on the MEF staff would wear.

Joking aside looks like some JRotc type device.

American Cadet Alliance? https://en.wikipedia..._Cadet_Alliance

They had a Marine Brigade. This is from eBay:

Beast that sounds like a good possibility. I wonder as to what time frame these are. I read the link on the history but it was not really clear on the "ACA" part.

 

Thanks as I know more now than I did yesterday

At least post-1955 based on the emblem design, but other than that, no idea..  Is there anything on the reverse of the devices at all?
