  1. The Hangover patch is a Vietnam era made . I don't know if it is a "novelty" patch because there were so many different ones made for small units (AHC) and for whole divisions (173rd Airborne had "The Herd"archs The 25th "Wolfhounds)It is made exactly like some of the patches I kept.....the backing is the give away...looks like cheese cloth which is a good sign Hang on to it
