.....these were my Dads AF cap badge and collar insignia. After his service as a medic in WW2. Sometime between then and Korea he joined the AF Reserve. He was activated during the Korean Conflict and spent time in Columbus, Ga. He said the group he was in trained air crews on C 47's. His rank was TSgt. None of his uniforms survived. I do remember a bag down in the basement. It disappeared when I was 8-10 years old. I would like to put the cap badge on a hat for display. Not sure if the proper hat would be Army od, tan or AF blue?

What is the purpose of the solid White tape, is it sewn on?

Hello Sir, thats the question i want to know also. It’s sewn directly to the shirt and ita been there forever. 
 

Maybe some information stamped there early on, but get washed out.
