Yes, as they are White on Blue cloth, from circa 1965 to late-sh 80s or there about,s.

 

The two with the missile are just that badges for missilemen, or USAF Guided Missile Badge or Missileman's Badge, the one with Star is for Senior Missileman.

 

The top right Flight Surgeon, and below Explosive Ordnance Disposal Badge, it's just like the Army's one, only here on the AF color cloth. These were worn on the Fatiques and Field Jackets in them days, the two on the right above the White on Blue U.S. AIR FORCE tape, the Missile one on the pocket, left pocket, in it's metal form, this one was also worn on the pocket of the dress Blue and Khaki uniform as well.
