Recommended Posts

Brig Gen Alva Fitch  3rd_Armored Division Artillery Commander in West Germany in the mid-sh 50s wearing the 3rd Armored Division PTC on Green Loops without Tab, nor does his patch have the Tab yet either. Fitch, West Point 1930 was captured in the PI, as 2nd Battalion Commander of the 71st Field Artillery of the new Filipino 71st Division

 

His DSC citation mistakenly has the 91st Field Artillery as his unit, as there was a 91st Coast Artillery (PS) thee was no 91st Field Artillery.

Here's a cool picture of 2nd Infantry Division patch type crests being worn with a 2nd ID combat patch with KOREA tab.

The 82nd's NCBU again, like sometime in the 70s.

 

Officer is one Colonel John Cooke, perhaps a Brigade C.O. no further info other then his Obit which no mention of units.

My guess would be a staff officer, probably division Chief of Staff. Note he is wearing the oval for Headquarters, 82nd AIrborne Division. If he were a brigade commander, the oval would have one, two or three ticks to represent the brigade. He's wearing an oak leaf cluster on his National Defense Service medal ribbon and also has a Meritorious Service Medal, so this was probably taken in the 1970's.

Another Air Trans Command PTC  on a coat worn by a  Charles E. Seemann 1328th AAF Base Unit CBI unit was in India. (From member Timberwolf).

Another Korean War era 6th Army PTC with just the star and A without the OD disc, a fella named Charles Allen Ford sometime in 1951 or 52. He interstyly dosn't wear the 6th Army patch for whatever reason, I suspect this was taken at some post, Ord or Lewis would be my guess, which are under 6th Army when he was going through AIT of an unknown branch.
