This looks like it has some age to it and might be a WW2 era piece that has some sort of US submarine force connection.  Any ideas?

Congrats, you scored a real keeper. Wartime USS Snook patch.  The girl is “baby snooks” played by Fanny Brice.  One of three that I know to exist, and possibly presented to a crew member by Brice herself, via mail of course.  She was the ships official mascot.  Genuine documented wartime us submarine patches are extremely rare.  Most are post war.  I keep a file on this one.
