179th Assault Support Helicopter Company - "Shrimpboats, Hooks"


Disney designed 179th Pocket patch made in Vietnam


The original “Disney” Patch order for the 179th ASHC / 402nd T.C.. When supplies of this one ran out, the other variation you display was made locally (mid / late ’70). Proof………Notice the “copyright” up along the side, only required in U.S. It shows a bit of fading and a touch of that red dirt we all came to love. I still have the patch!
