Can anybody identify the patch on this soldiers sleeve please? The only thing I know about this man is he may have been in Hawaii and Germany at one time and his name is John Wm Busel? I think. Any thing you could tell me would be appreciated. Thank you.

 

 

Sorry about the quality its a pic of a pic.

Yep, 24th Infantry Division for sure. Nicknamed the "Electric Strawberry" during the 60's (Vietnam era) and is still around today.

Thank you guys! I was thinking that this was a "friend" of my grandmothers before she met my grandfather. And she worked over in Japan as a civilian during the occupation so you are probably right about him spending time in Japan.
