This is the one time Secretary of the Army, Howard Hollis Callaway how was SofA 15 May 1973 3 July 1975, photo taken sometime in 1974, on a trip to USAEUR. Note the 7th Inf Div combat patch AND Cloth subdued CIB, uncertain what patch if any he has on the left shoulder, Washington District?? Callaway was a Infantry Officer during the Korean Conflict and would be entitled to these insignia, but from photos I've seen from before Callaway, fatiques worn by SofAs was rare, think Resor (1965-1971) was the only one who wore them, in Vietnam, don't think it had tapes, might of, it was an unadorned look, with soft cap, and unbloused boots, most of the time he was in civvies stateside. So Callaway was justly proud of his service, and felt totally comfortable wearing a badged fatique uniform. http://www.history.army.mil/books/sw-sa/callaway.htm Here's another photo of Callaway showing the 7th Inf Div Combat patch during this USAEUR trip, Callaway receiving a hand salute from a 2nd Lt of 1st Infantry Division (Forward) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
