Unidentified patch: Pine Tree with CHS

I have had this patch on forum before concerning translation with no success but now it seems

it may not be Korean language. It was found with many USAF patches from the 50s and 60s but

now I am wondering what language is shown.

Any help is appreciated.

Unknown on the language but this could be a C.A.S.H. related unit Combat Army Surgical Hospital. The green tree shape being the A. I recall when you posted this patch the first time and wondered the same then. Good luck on an ID.

Just found this patch and still would like an ID on it. Still like the C.A.S.H. possible id of it. Maybe the Aviation section? Something with connections to the 91st Div? Good to get this back in the light again and some new eyes looking at it.

Ok I was able to have the wording at the bottom translated for me by a South Korean language instructor at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey. It says Chee-Nah Mahn Gahm Nida which translates to "I Just Pass By".

Total shot in the dark here, but the "California Hot Shots" have many aviation assets including medevac resources. They are a wildland fire fighting organization that has been around for many years. That would explain the fir tree, etc. Just a possibility...

I have also been told CHS is the 3-letter designator for Charleston AFB which may have trained Korean Medical Personnel.

Any other thoughts to this suggestion?
