DESRON 2 - at Yankee and DIXIE STATION 1968
Very nice additions guys.
Thanks for posting.
Here is a pair of Desron 2 from 1973
While not DESRON I think Cruiser Destroyer groups and Flotilla's fit in this topic, so I will add a few.
First up Cruiser Destroyer Flotilla 8
Destroyer Flotilla 5
Cruiser Destroyer Group 7th Fleet
Cruiser Destroyer Force Atlantic
I too really enjoy the USN & USMC patches, although am not ready to "jump in" to that arena.
Destroyer Squadron 21 is really cool.
Cruiser Destroyer Flotilla 3 not my picture waiting for this to arrive.
Not a patch, but a three war veteran plaque.....
Destroyer Squadron One, Destroyer Division 11
USS PERKINS (DDR-877) 1944-1973
Watchdog of the Pacific
Painted ceramic on Philippine mahogany
Anchor's AweighMemberNational Association of Fleet Tug Sailors - The Salvage Navy!
I am liking the Plaques Salvage Sailor..
Was attached to COMDESRON staff for a short time while serving aboard USS Henry B. Wilson in 1980
Back of DESRON 7
This was my Fathers, while serving on USS Perkins DD-877 in 1961. Believe it to be Japanese made
Back of Dads DESRON 13 patch
This was my DESRON 13 patch while serving in USS Bradley, FF-1041 from '75-'79 Not as nice as my Dads, and bought in the ships store, Do not remember what brand, most likely Gemsco. As I recal, they supplied pretty much all ships jacket patches then.
Back of '70s DESRON 13
here is a great pair East Coast (26) and West Coast (31) The " Mod Squad" label was given during the Zumwalt reign as CNO these two DESRONS had officers assigned to CO and XO positions who were a pay grade below what the normal pay grade for that billet would have been, so if a DE's CO normally would have been a Commander a Mod Squad CO would be a LT Commander. The thought was to give junior officers more leadership responsibility. These are the sellers pictures I don't have them in hand yet.
A well worn and used foreign made DESRON 21 patch from a navy divers personal collection (he was a tin can sailor prior to dive school)
