Hi Guys,

Great patches so far. I would like to add 2 Vietnam era CTF 77 patches here as they relate directly to carriers. First one is a 6 inch Japanese made NavSecGrp Det 5 for CTF 77. Patch has been removed from a jacket.

USS FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT (CV-42) Midway class In service 1945 to 1977 - One Last Screw - Final cruise prior to decommissioning at Mayport Naval Station

 

The ship embarked Carrier Air Wing Nineteen for its final deployment, which lasted from October 1976 to April 1977. VMA-231 was on board for this deployment, which demonstrated that VTOL aircraft could be successfully and seamlessly integrated into fixed wing air operations.

Thanks! Sadly, I don't have those two patches anymore. I sold them because I found something that I wanted more. The good thing is that they went to a former Intrepid crew member and he was tickled to death to get them. :D
