Some WWII patches brought in on Monday.

  Had this little group dropped off Monday at the museum. Nothing super special, but glad to see things coming in. Usually winter is quite slow around Michigan for walk ins.   Scott

A few nice examples there Scott. Winter "walk-ins" are quiet at our museum too!

   Thanks Smitty! I was thinking something along the lines of ordnance with those colors.   Scott

Those are some nice patches but not all are WW II. The 14th AAF, 2nd AD without the tab and the ASF are WW II for sure. The chevrons,1st Army, Far East Command  and Army ROTC are KW/ early to mid 1950s. The 2nd Army and 2nd AD with the tab are late 50s.

 The rest are harder to tell. They could be WW II or later.
