Certainly nothing Uncommon about  1st Cav Div Combat patch being worn in early 1970, but just wanted to post this nice shot of one, non Infantry Sgt E-5 Type, could be for many of the non Infantry units of the CAV..

John Eisenhower in Germany in the summer of 45 in the Big Red One, he wears no other unit insignia save for the shoulder patch, which seems to be a German Made one right. (35th Division guy also there we see)

Joe Amos, KIA Vietnam as a S/Sgt, 1st Bn 18th Inf 1st Inf Div October 30 1967.  He was in the 187th RCT in Korea, his 187th RCT patch looks like its Japanese made, with a scroll attached to it, the ends of the scroll maybe saying 187th on the one end and RCT on the other, and AIRBORNE in the center.

A 12th Armd Div GI, curious to why the French Rope, no units in the 12th were awarded it.

Well, who is to say he served the whole war with the 12th. Could well have come from a unit like the 2ndAD due to a lack of rotation points and stayed on with the 12thAD for occupation duty after the 2ndAD left for the states. Would have been a personal award if he served in the unit at the time of the award, and the 2ndAD received that French award.  
just speculating.

Officers and NCOs of the 48th Infantry Brigade and 24th Infantry Division (M) get set for a FTX at Fort Stewart Georgia in July 1983, men from both units wear either the new BDUs or the old OGs

Here's a more recent photo of Private Randall Ching.  If he's still alive would be in his late 90's now.VOD_Randall_Ching_FB-1536x870.jpg.74e4aa50e07264069c2449d8606acfa9.jpg
