some patches from family and friends got along the way.. The Tank Destroyer patch lower right is the one Mike gave me.. IF you look close at the other 2 and the ones from the wall hanging they are all different! Too many variants!,,cool though..

The lower left "Thunderbird" patch is that of the 45th Infantry Division

Until 1939, it was a swastika ... reflecting the use of that symbols as a good luck charm

The swastika has been used as a symbol for thousands of years.
American Indians used it turned 'both' ways.
To the left was good luck, to the right, as pictured, was bad luck!
