Air University cut edge - Were AAA/CAC officers assigned to train at Air University?


Received the following info from a USAF vet friend and member via email in regard to Air University:


Afraid the I can't shed much light on why the Col. has so many USAAF and USAF patches, except that it would not have been at all unusual for a CAC officer to be assigned to the Air University as either faculty or student.  The Air University was designated as such in March 1946 after being around in some form since 1920.  By the way, AU patch was not approved until May 1948, several months after  the USAF was separated from the Army, which narrows down the window of opportunity for Col. X's likely association with AU.


So his Air University duty would fit into his post-war assignments before/after Korea
