Hello, what you have is U.S. Army and it is Headquarters Company U.S. Army. On plate 123 #12 & 13 (U.S. Army Heraldic Crests book) by stein. There are a left and right side. Hope this helps.
Very much! Thank you.

Picked this up off ebay a while back. It was on an officers jacket with quite a bit of moth damage and no ID to make me keep them together.

It came with two WWII era Warrant Officer rank insignia, but doesn't look like it is U.S. to me. Any ideas?

Foreign / International / Chinese WWII medal

Medal is part of a collection belonging to U.S. pilot in China. I haven't found another like it anywhere. A native of China tried to translate it but it was very difficult because the characters are traditional Chinese and she speaks the modern dialect. She did think it said something about air force though.

Got this patch with a grouping on ebay, have no idea what it is and my usual investigating skills have eluded me.

I've only seen one other like it and they were saying it was a VMSB-233 patch. It was on leather and really looked like a repo to me. But I'll offer my opinion (for what that's worth  ;D ) and say it is a variation of 233's patch. The material almost nails it down to the Pacific Theater.
