ID Of USN Squadron Patch on M422A? VF-901


Recommended Posts

I picked this M422A up a couple of years ago and I can not identify the squadron patch on the chest. The jacket is has a USN name tag and a twill type squadron patch. Can anybody ID the patch for me? I would appreciate any help. thanks Mike

Interesting patch.I really like the design.Not sure of the ID.Sometimes the Reserve units can be tough to pin down.

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.

when I first saw the patch I was not even sure the patch was military but it matches same thread the name tag was attached to the jacket with. It also appears to be similar in construction to other 50's era squadron patches I have seen..

As Jeffro said, around from 52-55. Stationed at NAS Spokane, WA. Flew Bearcats and later Cougars. Can't be too many around, nice jacket!

That is great news, NAS Spokane was a very short lived air station and is located in my home town.

Thanks everybody for the info

Go Navy!
