USAF 37th ARRS Patch


Recommended Posts

Per Wikipedia, the 37th AARS operated both at Danang, Vietnam and Udorn, Thailand during the Vietnam War.

 

Without a bigger or more detailed photos I would guess your patch was made in Thailand.

Well, this is the hazard in relying on one source of information.

 

Here is another website that indicates that their were 37th AARS detachments operational into the 1980's.

 

With your larger photo I would say that was made in Korea probably in the 1980's.

The 37th Flew the Jolly Greens, HH-3s and HH-53s From 1967 to 1972. Then flew HH-43 Huskies 1971 to 1972. The beaver patch is from when they moved to Francis E Warren AFB Flying UH-1 Iroquois 1973 to 1988. Then they changed the patch again to a UH-1N Iroquois over a globe 1988 to present.
