Picked this up yesterday but haven't a clue as to what is. Any ideas? It's eight inches long and 5.5 inches wide.

No, not USMA -- probably another.

Never saw one like this.

I'm guessing it is SGT MAJ insignia since the oak leaf is the same as WW2 period bullion Major insignia I have. Since there were about a million different ROTC programs during WW2 you may never pin it down. The Aviation Cadets used similar insignia as well. That is posted here somewhere on the forum. I am off to see if I can find it.

I can't find the chevrons here on the forum. I looked at my original pics however and there is not a similar insignia in that group. They were called Flying Cadet chevrons rather than Aviation cadet in case you are searching elsewhere.

Some of the bullion MAJ and LT COL insignia I have was made by Meyer so you might search them as a source for your chevron.

Matching that to a military school or an ROTC program could be a real nightmare.
