"Select Crew" was a Curt LeMay deal. One of his SAC innovations to inspire crews to train harder and score higher on their many and various skill inspections. SAC was a TOUGH life .

Your select crew is specific to the 50th TFW at Hahn AB, Germany, in the early 60s. This program was used in USAFE and had nothing to do with the SAC one though it used similar elements. It is German made.

That's actually my patch! I'm an SSS member, and put all those patches and history together for that site. I have about 90 more to load soon. Lots of neat stuff there if you're into USAF history and patches.
