Until I read this thread this AM, I never knew anybody considered the USAREUR airborne patch w/yellow "AIRBORNE" to be a fake. In 1970, I was involved with a REFORGER exercise; and spent a tremendous amount of time at Ramstein, Echterdingen and Rhein-Main. While at Ramstein, I ran into a group of riggers; and they were wearing the yellow airborne version. I convinced a Spec 4 to cut his patch off; and I paid him $5 for his efforts. The patch is still in my collection.

I suspect the 557th QM (which was still active in the early 1970s), may have switched at some point and time from the white to yellow version. If anybody is ON FIRE to solve this riddle; there is a simple solution.

Go to: http://rrrnc.tripod.com/

This is the website for the Retired Airborne Riggers' Reunion. They have a guestbook for people to post messages and I'm sure they would be willing to help out. Old Soldiers love to talk about their past. ;)

AND last for now, SHEAF notice the large blue and black versions have the same details. Thelast two are pretty much identical except the number of flames on the left and right side of the sword are diferent. 5 on one side and 6 on te other then reversed on the next patch.
