COAST GUARD VIETNAM PATCHES


Recommended Posts

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..

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.
