I`m trying to find an image of the 862nd medical group insignia with a Latin banner on the bottom. There`s a patch on Ebay I found, but don`t know if it`s a medical group one. I know the group was at Minot in the 60`s, but I`m having no luck with a pic to verify it`s a medical group. I found a similar pic on USAFPatches that`s a hospital.

Thanks

internet search shows a year book from Minot in 1964 having them listed and another in 1969. So at least a 5 year period. Below is the 1964 one.

The 862d Medical Group was also formed and reported to the Commander, 810th Air Division.

 

On 2 July 1969 the 862d Medical Group was renamed the USAF Hospital.

Many times they kept the same insignia and changed the scrolls as needed. So, very possible the design for USAF Hospital, Minot was used when it was known as the 862 MDG.

Thanks for all the help. The 862d Combat Support Group insignia I`m looking at is different. Old medical group patches are some of the ones I like collecting. They always cost more than the "average" ones in general and I`d hate to make a purchase that isn`t what I hoped it might be.
