The one that looks like a unit crest bottom center, will be just that, a embroidered unit crest, worn on the shoulder loops of a Class A IKE or Khaki shirt, seems to be Infantry, I suspect a yet to be identified 1950s Armored Infantry Battalion of an Armored Division.

Pic 1 bottom center I believe is the 22nd TRS USAF

 

Pic 2 bottom right is the 561st TFS USAF

 

Pic 3 top left is the 61st TCS or TAS USAF

top right is for the USN F-8 Crusader aircraft

Skio hit the AF ones already, but a slight correction: The 561 is FBS era. Too bad it's unfinished, it looks German made possibly.

Pic #1 2nd row middle 26th TAC Recon Wg

No, that is the 22 Tac Recon Sq. The 22 TRS was part of the 26 TRW from 1965-1966. The patch pictured above was when the 22 TRS was part of the 67 TRW from 66-71, the 26 TRW era one was much larger and on twill.

It was ID'ed in my first post 301st ASA

Yes you did, my error, didn't factor in the ASA, cause it looked like an Armd Inf Bn type. The the old unit crest it would seem (TIOH is down still, so can't tell when the new one was adopted, this one here). 301st Army Security Agency Battalion was in South Korea in the 50s so no doubt a cloth DI made there in Theater, probably for/on the khaki shirt. which is typical for the period.
