USS Forrestal Patch 1961


Recommended Posts

I was in the army early to mid 60's so I'm not too familiar with navy ship patches and I was interested in knowing what the letters around the points of the star stand for. 

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Battle "E"


Those denote Battle Efficiency Awards earned by the USS FORRESTAL for Engineering, Communications and Gunnery (some with hash marks for subsequent awards)


The colors denote departments, green for communications, red for engineering,  black for gunnery, etc.
