I picked up an unusual challenge coin at the flea market. It is for the 5th. Flying Training Squadron at Vance AFB in Oklahoma. Their nickname is the "Spittin' Kittens".


If I was going to invent a nickname for my squadron with this emblem I might call it the "Fighting Tom Cats" or something a little more agressive. But since it is a training squadron perhaps "kittens" is appropriate?

The reason they were called the "spitten kittens " was the original emblem I posted represented a little black kitten and he was "spitten " lightning .....

The emblem design was carried on some of their P-51 C aircraft in a slightly different variation from the patch design .
