Hi all

Cecil Rodgers 1920.

Possibly a civilian organization like ROTC?

I think it looks P O S ??  Also note placement of emblem.

Hi Mike

Regarding your 82nd patch, I have always thought this was made in error/misinterpreted off an original design.

The below design drawing  was from H Ross Fords excellent book SSI of the AEF 1918-1919,and was communication  between Adj. Gen. to CG, and as pointed out was in colour. 

You can see how an error or misinterpretation could occur.

In the book also has gold AA.

Your patch has all the traits of a WWI era patch also Dan Griffin and Steve Johnson did not dismiss this patch. I showed Steve he would want more solid provenance but again as he said there were thousands of seamstress making up thousands of patches during that period.

As DK says don't sell it.

Hi Wiley

I had to google "From here to eternity."

The Ranking system was a different structure used from 1920-1949 in as much as Grade 7 was PFC and Grade 1 was 1st Sgt, MSgt/SGTMAJ.

This system was was used into the Korean war.

So to answer your question The above 1Sgt Grade 1 ,Diamond with 2 bars was worn 1920-1942. Diamond with 3 bars 1942-58(?)

Sometime in the mid 60's 1sgt (c1965) became E8. However not to sure on exact date.

U.S. Army / Re: Portrait of a new WWI 32d Division patch?

I did think of it being 32 Inf. Regt., however the Individual was with the 32nd Div. either way its certainly unusual.

Your 22nd Cav. could that be Div or Rgt. , maybe there is a new story in there regarding small round unit ID's in there Dave?
