DESRON 26 has the most variety in their patches with several different patterns developed over the decades

 

The motto on the patch at lower right says, "No sooner said than done"

 

Yet another version of DESRON 26 made by Swiss Tex around 1973

Morotai, Leyte, Samar, Iwo Jima, Okinawa - Rescued the crew of the USS BISMARCK SEA (CVE-95)

 

Joining the U.S. 5th Fleet at Ulithi in January 1945, Edmonds screened escort carriers in the Iwo Jima operation in February. On 21 January Bismarck Sea was sunk after the crash of a Japanese kamikaze detonated the escort carrier's ammunition. Edmonds directed the rescue operations, saving 378 of the carrier's crew including the commanding officer, in spite of darkness, heavy seas, and continuing air attacks. Thirty of her own crew went over the side to bring the wounded and exhausted carrier men to safety.

DESRON 6 - Homeport Pascagoula, MS - Western Hemisphere Group Tactical Squadron https://web.archive.org/web/20051021070106/http://www.cnsl.spear.navy.mil/cds6/

 

OUR MISSION: Dedicated support to operations in the United States Southern Command's area of responsibility, the U.S. Navy's Executive Agent for combating and countering narco-terrorism, and the development of tactics and procedures to assist in our nation's war on drugs.

 

In April 1994, Commander, Destroyer Squadron 6 (COMDESRON 6) at Charleston, SC, changed homeport to Pascagoula, Mississippi and subsequently was dual hatted as Commander, Naval Surface Group Pascagoula. In January 1996, as a result of a reorganization of the United States Atlantic Fleet, Commander, Naval Surface Group Pascagoula was renamed Commander, Regional Support Group Pascagoula. In April 1998, as the result of yet another reorganization, COMDESRON 6 shifted operational control to Commander, Western Hemisphere Group, and was redesignated as a Tactical Squadron. Around 1998, the squadron included Hall, Ticonderoga, and Yorktown. In December 1999, COMDESRON 6 was redesignated as a Tactical/Readiness Squadron under the operational control of Commander, Naval Surface Group 2. At one point, the composition of Destroyer Squadron 6 included FFG-16 at Mayport, FFG 22 at Charleston, SC, USS Samuel Eliot Morison (FFG-13) at Charleston, SC, FFG 15 at Norfolk, and FFG 20 and FFG 21 at Pascagoula.

 

NAVSTA Pascagoula, MS was officially closed 15 November 2006 with a disestablishment ceremony held 29 September 2006
