A metal reproduction from a deros plaque - a little worn from age.

This one also came from the plaque. It was the pocket patch for our gunship platoon in 69. Snoopy was our mascot also. At least for the first flight AKA the "Mighty white Maggots". We had painted on a wall flying his dog house full of bullet holes painted at first then on a night that was real drunk out someone put a few real ones into the dog house. The caption under it read "Curses shot down again". I wasn't there when the real bullet holes were put in but I did get a lot of laughs when I heard the multitude of rumors as to how they got there.
