I've had this patch for quite a while. I actually thought I lost it and just found it today. I've never been able to identify it. I think it might be a transportation unit or possibly a maintenance unit.

Does anyone recognize this patch? It appears to be German made from the 60's or Early 70's.

 

The DI is the 15th Aviation Group which was under the Seventh Army. I was wondering if the patch was a sub unit of the group or perhaps for a HQ flight element? I don't know when the DI was approved, so if it is the same unit, it could be from prior to the approval.

I found it, it's the coat of arms of the current 13th Aviation Regiment. Next question, from when? The 13th Combat Aviation Bn was active from 1964 to 1972 in Vietnam. It seems there was a 13th Attack Helicopter Bn active in the mid 1980's in Germany. I couldn't find when the current 13th Aviation Regiment was activated.

 

Does anyone know if the 1980's 13th AHB and the current 13th Aviation Regiment share a lineage? The current unit and the Vietnam era unit do share the same DI (which is slightly different than the COA), but with different mottos.

I found this in a Google search it might get you the ID you need, scroll down and you will see a picture of the patch that looks like your decal.

 

Patch is for the 64th Transport Company, the direct lineage for the 114th. Formed early 1956, thru till March 1958, merged with 544th Trans Det into C/17th.

Good job on that link, didn't spot it, excellent that the patch is depicted, not sure thought if this decal posted by rooster was worn on the helmet liner of troops of this unit, probably put on other items like unit footlockers, cabinets, fight bags etc etc.
