101st Airborne Vietnam era patches - real or what?

I recently came across these four 101st Airborne Division patches. 

They were described as being "Vietnam era patches".

 

I was wondering if someone could confirm if these badges are indeed Vietnam era.

In a word, yes, you could get away with calling all of the patches "Vietnam era." The last patch that you posted is what collectors call a "lumpy head" and is from the immediate post WWII era when the division was reflagged as a training unit and the Airborne tab was not worn.

Thanks for the confirmation. I've checked Mark Brando's website and compared a lot of patches elswhere online, but as I'm no expert I still find I quite hard to tell the differences. So thanks for your help!
