  1. Your top crest is the Quartermaster RTC (WW II) the bottom crest is the national guard for Montana.
  2. This the crest for the 672nd Engineer Company
  3. A Co, 299th Engineer Battalion was assigned to the 14th Cavalry. He's probably wearing the soft tab color insignia authorized for wear . The cloth was worn in the cuff of the garrison cap. Not having a better picture only makes this speculation looking at the B/W photo. The picture attached is for wear as a shoulder loop. The cloth for the Cav (or 4th Infantry Regt) would be a longer ribbon.
  4. a much more lighter blue, "infantry blue" would be indicative of the 74th Infantry Brigade, 37th Infantry Division; where, this one is mostly likely the tank company.
  5. This is a version for 591st Engineer Regiment, Boat & Shore, 2759th Combat Engineers Here's a resource: http://www.lonesentry.com/S9/
  6. Not very common. They had right and left facing crests. Issued to CI Corps at Ft Holabird MD and some dets in New York. Bith pin back and clutch back versions exist.
  7. Most probably the 131st Tank Battalion, Alabama NG. 131st Cavalry Regiment ("Southern Leaders" was the motto then) AL ARNG 1913); became a Tank Battalion roughly 1951 (Motto: "Taught to Lead"). 1st Squadron AL ARNG, Armored Recon Squadron, 149th Armored Bde 35th ID(M) Ozark, AL
  8. First crest is a facsimile of the 331st Tank Battalion, probably Aresta. The third is an Aresta of 534th Tank Battalion
  9. It's a golf club pin. Jay Massaro had one in his collected that is displayed at Camp Mabry at the Texas Military museum. See picture attached from his collection
  10. The 1st Armored Car Squadron, formerly of the 1st Separate Cavalry Squadron, of the Rhode Island National Guard. There was one in Maryland, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. Probably other states, replacing horses for cars.
  11. upper right is 175th Field Artillery Regiment, 34th Infantry Division Minnesota National Guard
  12. 38th Engineer Company (Panel Bridge) 540th Eng Grp VII Corps
  13. Yep, good call. I had a flier from Glendale with a facsimile of the team they played but the thunderbirds have an Indian chief as their m ascot
  14. 480th Field Artillery 45th Infantry Division Oklahoma NG Right facing. they are paired.
  15. I originally thought a red sash and red horse was Division Arty, but apparently not. What does the jury say? The third crest below is 2nd Cavalry Brigade, which was in China/Burma Theater. Interesting crest.
  16. I'm sure there's so many, many more out there. The 1st Cav has a long history (Thanks to MacArthur).
  17. Here's what I gathered from the Ft Hood Museum and Jay Massaro's collection at Camp Mabry (Austin). I'm going on the premise as the Museum is I believe that each brigade was broken down by color, red, white, blue as 1st, 2nd, & 3rd respectively. The first two are VIet Nam;
  18. This crest is the old Palo Alto Military Academy. Just sharing the same motto.
