If you look close, you can see where the top and bottom tabs were cut off.

RULES for C.N.A.s working the night shift at the local hospital.

 

1. Upper management has no sense of humor.

2. You can't fix stupid.

That could explain the removed tabs. That happened sometimes when units were redesignated but kept the same insignia.

Supplemental Info

 

The US Military had a AvGas/oil/JP-4 pipeline in Spain to support the Military Bases there. This pipeline started in Rota Spain where Ships unloaded fuel into large Tanks.

The pipeline transported the JP-4 fuel/oil/gasoline through Seville Spain, where two American Bases, Moron de la Frontera, and San Pablo, were located, then almost three hundred miles though farmland, mountains and streams to Madrid, where another Military Base, Torrejon de Ardoz, was located. The pipeline continueed on for another couple hundred miles to Zaragoza, Spain where another Base, Zaragoza AB, was located.

The pipeline ran about five feet below the ground and you could see where it was because the friction of the oil/fuel running through the pipeline created heat and dried the ground above it forming almost a white line above the buried pipeline. Every 100 miles there was a Pump Station that brought the oil/fuel above ground to repressurize the flow.
