    I found this looking through some of my father's items.
    I have no idea of what this patch signifies.
    Can you help identify?
    Thanks!

    We are losing our WWII vets at an alarming rate. I thank your father for his service.

    It shouldn't be too alarming since they are mostly in their late 80s or better.
    Those guys back then smoked and drank a lot and didn't have the best eating habits.
    Don't even get me started on the work place hazards.
