The Point White is all one grouping. I am not going to go into much, if any, detail at this time but information on individual patches will follow in the future.

The USCGC Chase patch came with the Squadron 3 patch next to it as did the USCGC Minnetonka patch. I don't know if the Minnetonka had a Vietnam deployment patch.

Except for the duplicate Squadron 1 patches these are Navy patches. They have a connection to the Coast Guard. Division 11 tied up to the APL 55 and Division 12 tied up to the YR-71. Any information on the YR-71 patch in the lower right would be greatly appreciated.

Keep an eye out for an oddball 1968 Squadron 3 patch, the blue,gold and white one with the V and the eagle. Although I lost it years ago, the patch I had was logo'd as Coast Guard Squadron THEE. I believe we bought them in Subic Bay. Would wonder if there are any others that may have survived over the years..

LORAN Station Tan My patch. This one is interesting because the shirt is Air Force. They were the security at Tan My.

I have a 1968 posted but mine has the "R". I did see another 1968 on ebay a few years ago but I don't know if that had the error or not.

Great collection! :o You have some outstanding examples of some very hard to find patches.Love the Point Orient Bat,Bloodhounds and White Elephant patches,and that large ELD 3 piece is sweet.


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

Don't let the B@stards wear you down -"Vinegar" Joe Stillwell

 

 

Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world.Unreasonable

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

therefore, depends on unreasonable people.

George Bernard Shaw
