VC-84 | USS Makin Island (CVE-93)

 

Established 6 Jan 1944. Disestablished 17 Sep 1945

Deployed on the USS Makin Island (CVE-93) 10 Nov 1944 - 5 Jun 1945

Action included combat air patrol and anti-submarine patrol and close air support (bombing, strafing, napalming specific targets on the ground) during battles at Luzon, Leyte, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. FM-2 Wildcat and TBM-3 Avenger

 

This patch (decal on 6" leather round) was included in an IDed grouping I was fortunate to acquire some years ago.

I remember the binocs as a kid. Wish I knew where they got too! I’ve got a piece of a zero wing that my dad cut out on Okinawa. I’ve posted it on the VC-84 grouping that JDK has. All the best, Brian
