VIETNAM POCKET HANGERS - CLOTH & METAL TYPES ALL BRANCHES


Recommended Posts

 

 

"LOG X" was a logistics exercise, and I believe it was held in the late 1970's well after Vietnam. I believe it was more focused on activating the logistics network in case of a WWIII war in Europe scenario. If I also recall correctly, it highlighted a lot of areas where they system became overburdened and bogged down.

 

Remarkably this happened long enough ago I cannot find anything about it on the internet.

 

GWB there is a thread on this somewhere, but no luck finding it.

This was part of a small ID'd group to a GI in the 199th Infantry Brigade.

 

I think it has something to do with the 23rd Americal Div, which I think the 199th was part of.If you look at the school there are stars that look like the same design as the 23rd patch.

Thanks firefighter. I recall seeing something years ago about the combat center patch, either in an ASMIC trading post or a copy of VICN but for the life of me I cannot anything about the article. Thanks for the correct ID on the ARVN General Staff patch too :)

"11JAN1973

It should be noted that no US SEALs were killed on this op.

Yep, even though it's in the monthly report I've never found confirmation of that.

Some sweet pieces IH. 2 great examples of some fine embroidery.The Skychiefs piece looks to be a hybrid of both the hand and machine sewn styles.

High Flight

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silver wings;

Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth

Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things

You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hovering there

I've chased the shouting wind along and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air.

Up, up the long delirious, burning blue

I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,

where never lark, or even eagle flew;

and while, with silent, lifting mind I've trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

 

John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

June 9, 1922 – December 11, 1941

Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world.Unreasonable

people attempt to adapt the world to themselves.All progress,

therefore, depends on unreasonable people.
