Uncommon and Obscure Combat Patches Being Worn.

Nothing Uncommon and Obscure about this being worn in 1953, but it is a great shot of Mark Clark wearing his 5th Army as a "Combat Patch"

Here is a member of Company K 75th Infantry, the LRRP unit assigned to the 4th Infantry Division in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970. He served a previous tour in 1968 with the provisional LRRP unit attached to the 3rd Brigade 82nd Airborne Division after its arrival in Vietnam in 1968 that subsequently became the 78th Infantry Detachment until being redesignated Company O 75th Infantry in February 1969. He is wearing a theater made subdued 82nd Airborne SSI with a subdued LRRP tab over it and unknown pocket patch.    

 

I believe that's a 75th Infantry Regiment DUI patch on the folded up brim on the side of his Aussie hat.
