"HS" Air Force patch mounted on a jacket. I cant find one online. There are indents around the patch that make the shape of wings so this patch once had wings on it. Any help appreciated.

Enlisted man assigned in an administrative role to an ROTC detachment?

Looks like someone sewed a JROTC patch to an AF jacket.

I would tend to agree.


Although it is very possible that there are retired airmen first class or possibly airmen second classes (1960s era), the likelihood that someone would end up instructing JROTC is very unlikely. Only during the early stages of the implementation of Shade 84 uniforms were shoulder patches worn. This uniform pretty much resembles a winter-weight shade 1549 uniform that I was issued in the mid-1970s. The only shoulder patches would have been worn by the CAP or JROTC, and even then, the rank would be very different.
