Looking for Identification of the shown patch. I don't know if it is USAF or USN but it doesn't have USN wings.

What do the letters C H S stand for and can anyone ID the writing at the bottom..

Any help is appreciated.

It's a frustrating one for sure.  I was checking US Army camps in Korea to see if it was Camp H..... Or C.... Hospital Section.

I have farmed it out to a USAF Hospital patch expert, who has written several articles on USAF Hospitals and Dispensary patches, all published in The Trading Post.  He has suggestions, but they don't appear to pan out yet.  

 

He is also farming it out to a study group.

​I agree that it does look Korean made. Is that a '2/..' on the bottom?

You should ask some people in your neighborhood if they can read the writing.......

Walk into a Korean Restaurant, order a meal and ask them to translate the words.

Have now been told it is not Korean. Someone even suggested Greek.

Google translate didn't id it either.

 

Thought I would bring it back up for further ideas or with some luck an ID!
