A Chaffee tank of the New Jersey National Guard's 102nd Cavalry with it's unit crest painted on it's turret (I image it's on both sides). Uncertain when it was taken, it wont be late WWII as the man in the drivers hatch is wearing the M1947 HBT shirt so would it be Post War period, the Korean War Period when the unit was redesignated Armored Cavalry, it certainly will be before 1954, as the men are not wearing the U.S.ARMY tapes sewn above their Fatique pockets.

The 5th Cavalry, D Troop 5th Calvary the Recon unit of the Army Reserves 187th Inf Bde (Sep), January 1974.That of course is John Wayne with them, seen this from 1974 about Wayne being at Harvard for a debate or something.

The 23rd Infantry at Ft Benning Georgia 1961, note the unit was still using the orginal crest, without the WE SERVE scroll that would be adopted in an amendment in July 1969.

The 6th Cavalry as some kind of unpainted wall plaque, maybe metal? though it was also the shoulder patch as well. This in the early 60s Colonel William H. Hale 6th Armored Cavalry Regiment, Commanding. Fort Knox Kentucky.

The 37th Armor on tanks of the 4th Battalion 37th Armor 194th Armored Brigade (Sep)  Spring 1975 Fort Knox Kentucky, it would seem to have been a fashion within the battalions of this brigade in the 70s, as seen on the page before of another unit of the brigade with DIs on their tanks, the 6th Battalion 32nd Armor.

81st patch with the branch insignia of the units that made it up. Ignore the Task force and Operation things... someone was infected by the good idea fairy. We technically were all part of B btry since we got attached to them, but the engineers outnumbered them, and we never wanted to be part of an artillery battery in the first place. It was one of our guys who drew and painted this so he made sure to show the separate units.

An interesting find, an early WWII one of the 23rd Infantry's DI, a stylized one, as a wall plaque, but note the WE SERVE Scroll, the scroll with motto won't be added till the late 60s. Officer is one Colonel H.E. Fuller who would go on to lead the 110th Infantry 28th Infantry Division.

Found another Tank from the 194th Armored Brigade where they placed their Unit Crest on the sides of their Turrets.

 

This time the 5th Battalion 33rd Armor, in 1973.
