Vietnam Era and manufacture NAVCAT Naval Construction Action Team.

From WIKI

 

CBMU-302

 

During the battalion's time in Vietnam, it became the first Seabee battalion to operate in the three lower divisions of the Republic of Vietnam (Corps Tactical Zones II, III, IV); became the largest Seabee battalion since WWII; as of Oct 1970, the only Seabee battalion to operate in all four Corps Tactical Zones at the same time; the only Navy Construction Battalion to wear an authorized shoulder patch (Naval Construction Action Team [NAVCAT] patch); the longest serving Seabee battalion in Vietnam (over 4.5 years). In April 1971, the battalion's headquarters relocated from Cam Ranh Bay to the large Army base at Bien Hoa.

More nice patches Bearmon. I hope these fit with the theme. Liberty cuffs and a printed on silk insignia from the Korean Era, Construction Bn Mobil Unit 101 - Fleet Marine Air Wing? Correct me if that is not right.

Nice additions Mitch, I have always wondered what the Seaborne patch was, it has many different ID's

Mostly I see it as 1st Trans Helicopter for the US Army

Here is a mate to Bermons other Navcat patch except this is a Japanese made version for NAVCAT 9 . As far as the Seaborne patch, there is alot of referance to the 1st TC Bn. which was an Army Helicopter maintenance unit stationed on the USNS Corpus Christi Bay during the Vietnam war. I don't think the Seabees Seaborne patch is related that unit at all.

Brian, Lets see some of your patches.

Regards, Mitch

Neat stuff guys.I love the Seabee stuff.


High Flight

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silver wings;

Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth

Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things

You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hovering there

I've chased the shouting wind along and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air.

Up, up the long delirious, burning blue

I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,

where never lark, or even eagle flew;

and while, with silent, lifting mind I've trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

 

John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

June 9, 1922 – December 11, 1941

Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world.Unreasonable

people attempt to adapt the world to themselves.All progress,

therefore, depends on unreasonable people.
