The 9th Inf Div PTC worn by Major John Frazee, 9th Avn Bn, 9th Inf Div, Dong Tam, July 1969, it may be a Beer Can, or it may be an old U.S. made one. Frazee also wears the We Try Harder button, an item recently IDed as a Avis Rent a Car button.

1st Cavalry Division PTC worn on the pocket of the dress greens of a Vietnam veteran of the 1st Brigade (Airborne) 1st Cavalry Division.

 

Note he is also wearing his name plate above his pocket flap rather than on it and it looks like he's wearing an Expert Badge with no qualification bar.

The PTC of the Army Ground Forces seen on this late WWII GI of an unknown unit, circa 1945/early 46 (He's got an IKE on and before the discs started to be worn on the lower lapels). Note he wears them Red side up, it's supposed to be Blue side up. Now two things are in play here, 1: This is the typical period colorized photo, where typical there are color errors, or 2: if not, then he just put them on upside down. Of note too is yet another sighting of the branch brass sans disc, probably off a screwback, being worn on the garrison cap.

A colorized WWII portrait of Amandio Correia who was in A Co 502nd PIR, 101st Abn Div, see his 101 PTC on the cap now that he's in the 82nd prior to shipping home.

Here's another example of the ATC patch type crest being worn, and looks like the patch too on the shoulder is the ATC as well.

Found great first time example of a PTC on a uniform, this while perusing stuff on ETSY.

Anti Aircraft Command Patch Type Crests. There's that Pacific Oceans Area patch on the right side again, the General Theater recognition patch that was popularly worn by some Pacific vets, plus the AA patch, that bolsters the idea that it was indeed worn by some AA units overseas in all theaters.

 

 

Item is up for grabs. (as usual, not affiliated with Vendor, just giving a heads up).

Major General John A. B. Dillard, Jr., commander of the U.S. Army Engineer Command, Vietnam, when his helicopter was shot down and he was killed on May 12, 1970.

 

In the picture he appears to be wearing the patch type crest of the first style of the U.S. Army Engineer Command, Vietnam (Provisional) which I believe was unofficial. The official SSI was not approved until 2 February 1971 and the Institute of Heraldry does not show any approved DUI.

Here's an uncropped photo of the General showing the DUI better.

The PTC of the Bayonet Division as seen on Colonel Mitchell J. Hazam in the mid 60s, with CIB number 2, he would earn a third in Vietnam as a senior advisor in MACV.

Here we see a variety of Patch Type Crests afixed to WWII Overseas Caps, also of various types, these were originally posted in another topic a ways back in December 2010 by member Sabrejet.

Just noticed something on this oft seen service foto of Kris Kristofferson, he's wearing 8th Inf Div patch type crests :D.

According to the Institute of Heraldry, the current DUI for the 8th Infantry Division was not approved until 26 April 1967 which I believe was after Kris Kristofferson had already left the Army. As an aviator (I believe he was a helicopter pilot) I assume he would have been assigned either to the 8th Aviation Battalion which had its own DUI or alternatively to the Aviation Section of the Division of one of the brigade HHC.

 

Notice too that he is wearing his nameplate Air Force style above the pocket rather than on the flap.
