Fourth Row / 2d from the left: USAF 771st Radar Squadron. I take no credit, it's right there on the patch!

If you were able to join the US Militaria Forum, the process is the same for the World Militaria Forum.  We'll keep this open for now as there are US patches on here, but please in the future sign up for the WMF and post non-US material there.  Thank you.

Vietnam: Commander Naval Forces Vietnam (COMNAVFORV)

Dates: 1965-1972

 

                " The Naval Forces Vietnam command had its origins in the Navy Section of the Military Assistance Advisory Group, Indochina, which was established in 1950 to provide supplies and equipment to the French.  In 1955 after the French defeat in Indochina the Navy Section became part of the Military Assistance Advisory Group, Vietnam.  In part, this name change reflected the fact that the United States now sent aid directly to the Vietnamese rather than to the French.  At this time, U. S. personnel also assumed an advisory role whereas during the French era they had primarily supplied material.  On 15 May 1964, the Navy Section became the Naval Advisory Group when the Military Assistance Advisory Group was merged into the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam.

                  Until March 1965 and the beginning of direct U. S. participation in the Vietnam War, the Navy served in an advisory capacity.  With the deployment of U. S. Navy combat units to Vietnam in the spring of 1965, the Naval Advisory Group additionally took on operational responsibilities.  On 1 April 1966 the two roles were separated with the establishment of Naval Forces Vietnam (NAVFORV).  The Naval Advisory Group continued its advisory role as a subordinate command under COMNAVFORV. "

 

I cannot tell from the photo if it is an original or a reproduction.

The two patches with the A S and the cross of Lorraine are WWI era patches for the US Army Advance Section Service of Supply.

 

Row 3, #6 is another WWI design for the 19th Infantry Division.  The way it is made, it looks like a post war copy.

 

Row 1, #3 is French for the #5 Commando Training School.  Sometimes selected US troops would train at this center and be awarded this patch.

 

Row 5, #1 and 2 are the 20th Engineer Brigade.

2nd row from top and third patch from the left (arrowhead shaped with Indian) is supposedly a DEVGRU or Seal Team 6 patch.  I don't know if it is genuine or one of the many copies or if it ever existed in the first place.
