This looks ASA related.USAFSK stands for US Army Field Station Korea.Nice patch!

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

Someone suggested earlier that it stood for USAF South Korea. Not sure that that is correct, nut I thought I would throw it out there.

I think PC is on the right track. The eagle design with scrolls is an ASA design. The USAFSK was redesignated from the USASA Field Station Korea in 1977. May be related to a unit in the 332nd ASA.

Thank you very much. Gives me a starting point. Appreciate it. I think I need to get a few more reference books.

Been looking through the 322nd and other ASA units and can't find it. This is interesting.
