I am not a patch collector in the normal sense, but I do collect WWII US Naval Aviation groups. I thought it might be fun to take pics of all the patches I have that are part of groupings and post them here. With each patch I will post the dates the vet served with the squadron to provide context to the age of the patch.

Here is the first one:

VBF-1. 1945

That all of them. All of these should be original based on how they were obtained.
