I recently obtained this 104th Infantry Veteran AEF Association Past Commander badge.  I am not familiar with this organization and believe it to be defunct, or to have merged with another veterans' organization.

I have one of these with a 1959 Bar in a group - I was able to determine the recipient by checking old newspaper articles for the Springfield Mass. Newspapers.

William R Connelly was the Past Commander in 1959 - He was a Bandsman who served as a Medic/Stretcher Bearer in WWI with the 104th

Your guy would be Roswell F Patch who served with the 104th in WWI

 

Bill,

 

Thank you very much for the ID.  I would not have thought to associate the badge and date bar with the Yankee Division Veteran's Association.  But, it makes sense to do so.

 

It is great to see your Past Commander badge as well.  I wasn't sure if mine had its original ribbon.  Seeing a similar one on yours tells me that it is.

 

Regards!

 

Kevin
