On the L-J Militaria site the "Fragrant 5 Region" was ID'd as an "SR-71" related piece

 

That would be the Lee-Jackson Militaria website, which has some of the best photographs of insignia on the internet.

It does, but be careful as far as some of the USAF IDs. The OP patch has never to my knowledge had a reliable ID. Not trying to stir the pot, just saying to be careful and be sure...

Thank you gentlemen for the positive ID! I am sure this patch has haunted many a collector who hoped it was a Skunk Works patch.

 

I assume after this gets more widely read quite a few of them will be pulled from collections shortly!

Like the 4 Roses patch

Good job putting this one to rest. Way too many patches with bad IDs out there due to folks "wanting" it to be something special.
