I'm curious about the 'A' patch in pic 3

 

Looks like these are all Zoomie patches and way beyond my purview

Randy question of the 328th bomb, I see a bunch on eBay with the arc. Is this one earlier? Thanks again

 

Yes, it is. looks 60s era to me. The tabbed ones came later.

I also saw it referred to as the 44th engineer battalion?

That is correct.

 

Looks like my information is out of date. Although considered a deployed unit in Korea, they were sent from there to Iraq in 2004, and from there to Ft. CARSON rather than returning to Korea. It was later inactivated.

Yes, the 413 MMS was part of ADC. I believe they were a unit that controlled the nuclear Genie rockets that would be released to arm Canadian F-101s during war. These rockets were maintained and controlled by USAF personnel and units in Canada.

The weapons release is for Air Defense Command
