Saw this recently from a friend to ID and had no clue. Thought perhaps connection to UNPIK or UN. Thanks for any help.

I believe this has something to do with French Airborne Forces.  The eagle looks like the one on their shoulder sleeve patches (see photo).

8240th A.U.

That's a patch for the french Airborne veterans, the "Union Nationale Parachutiste". The eagle is indeed a classic element of french airborne heraldic.
