Great looking picture.His ribbons look all out of order.Top row looks like WW2 Victory & American Legion.middle row looks like GCM, American Campaign & VFW ribbons.The bottom row should be on top.I assume he received a battle field commission.

I'm not sure, but it looks like a Sixth Army PTC on this soldier's hat

Could be, one version was this, made without the OD background with the star by itself.

We see an interesting crest here, I guess it can be considered a PTC, as it is one that has as it's main design the shoulder patch of a Division, but is patently different from the shoulder patch.

 

Here is Colonel James H. Skelton Chief of Staff 24th Infantry Division 1958-59.

He's wearing this.post-34986-0-01271700-1413338902.jpg

In the book this photo of Skelton comes from, 98% of the portraits and Staff Section Group photos of the Divisional Staff are wearing this shield type 24th Division crest

 

 

Interesting as there was a shoulder patch that was posted that is similar in shape to this crest, like the WWII era Hawaiian Cadres patch, but with VICTORY instead of HAWAIIAN attached tab. I said it was Japanese made, maybe then it was West German? Or looking at now on the topic below now, it may have been originally a Hawaiian Cadre patch that had it's HAWAIIAN tab cut off and a VICTORY tab somehow embroidered on.

 

See post #343 et al.

Another 20th Air Force PTC crest sighting.

 

Courtland Rueben Johnson September 1947. (note Ruptured Duck still being issued for wear, and the 4 pocket)

This guy has quite a story, U.S. Merchant Marines (late WWII), U.S.Army Air ForceF (Post WWII), U.S.Marine Corps Reserve (Combat Korean War,1st Marines, 1st Marine Division), back to the Army, this time Army Reserve (1955-1966 and then the Navy (1966-1985, I think Navy Reserve.

They were the approved DUI for GHQ US Army Air Force. I think that is the right designation.

Oh yeah atb, thanks for the info. It's an interesting one to be sure, a DI based on an early aircraft marking, and it shows up even after the war as seen in post #89

 

Curious to see if a PTC crest was ever made and worn based on this two AC patches.

Here's another soldier wearing the 101st Airborne Division PTC on the pocket of his khakis. Maybe this was just a 101st thing.

The 76th Inf Div, or more precisely for the date this photo was taken, sometime in 1981, the 76th Training Division. (photo from the rear cover of the Soldiers Magazine issue of January 1982)

Interesting, apparently the 76th Trng Div, never had a Non Color Bearing Unit insignia adopted for it, these started to come out starting in the mid 60s for these higher command elements, not sure if it had one in the late-sh 60s, then reverted back in 1977, and it just retained the divisional insignia in metal form.

Artillery officers of the 2nd Battalion 138th Field Artillery of the Kentucky National Guard wearing subdued XXIC Corps SSI in Vietnam - January 1969. Note the officer on the right is wearing some kind of full color XXIV Corps PTC on his helmet band. Also note the officer on the left is wearing the old style Artillery branch insignia after it was changed over to only crossed cannons the previous year.

Need however amend to add one particular to one of the quotes. This being that in the late 50s through the 60s, Ft Sill was the AIT site for Artillery Trainees who were to be trained in Ground to Ground Missiles, like the Honest John, Pershing, Sergeant, Air To Air, like the Nike series', the Hawk, the Vulcan, the AA Auto Weapons.....Bliss.

There was no ADA branch from 1957 to late 1968, there was only one branch, ARTILLERY, it combind the two functions in one super branch, the insignia of this new super branch was the traditional Crossed Cannons of the Field Artillery, with the Missle, the newer weapon of the Artillery superimposed at the axis of the cannons.

 

Thanks Patches
