Picked this up and not sure if its Navy or USMC can anyone ID this patch and the uniform it belongs too. The backing is a drab green and the stripes are black. Thanks in advance. Dwayne

Looks like Navy service stripes, worn on the cuff of enlisted men, one for each 4 years served

 

Marine Corps uses them, too, but not in those color patterns.

Please send me a PM with a text or an email address and I can send you better pictures as I am having problems uploading larger pictures thank you

We'd need much bigger photos than that

Are they black or dark blue? If they're blue, then they are probably from USN Aviation Greens. Black? Something else.

From US Navy Aviation Greens for E7 and above. Somewhere between 1925 and 2011, when they were phased out. Black on green is the appropriate color combo. These were on a CPO/SCPO/MCPO uniform as officers never have years of service stripes.
