Are these class patches all Army? I'm asking as I've seen several ID'd as USAF. Not doubting your IDs, the USAF ones could be in error. I guess I'm asking how positive you are on these. Just wanting to get it right, thanks!

A few more all from the 7th. Jeff

Anyone have the id on the 'Lucky Seventh' one? I have two cloth DI sized versions of this one and no ID.  Will have to get some of my patches posted on here!  Whenever I think of posting one someone else posts theirs.  Haven't seen a 10th Div. Arty Obs. yet so maybe I can  get it posted on here.  Agree to keeping this thread locked!  This is a true learning tool for all collectors. Might be the only time that some folks have seen afew of these beauties!!

The "Lucky Seventh" with the diagonal missile/rocket looking thing is the 7th Aviation Bn. it was the successor to the 7th Aviation Company. I think the Bn era started in 63'.

Cool patch. Was that a Navy or Army spotter unit?

Probably used  to spot gun fire on shore?
