Recommended Posts

DIRSUP (Direct Support) NSAD Naples these CT's would go to different platforms (ship, subs, planes) as required to do direct support.

 

 

I neglected to add the RMR stands for Ride Mother Ride, meaning getting underway.

How old do you think the Kodiak patch in post #66 is?

 

My father served there in the early 1960's around 62 through 64 and I was hoping to see examples of the patches they may have made.

 

Thank you.

That's the right time frame for this patch.

 

It's a cut edge made by Gemsco circa mid 1950's to mid 1960's
