45th Thunderbird Division Patch

OFFICIAL 45th DIVISION PATCH BEFORE WWII

OFFICIAL 45th DIVISION PATCH DURING WWII AND AFTER
AS A YOUNG BOY I LIVED IN LEESVILLE, LA NEAR FORT POLK AND BECAUSE MY FATHER WORKED ON THE BASE I GOT TO MEET SOME OF THE MEN IN THE 45th WHO WERE THERE IN TRAINING BEFORE BEING SHIPPED OUT TO KOREA.  TO THIS DAY I STILL HAVE A 45th DIVISION PATCH, BUT WAS UNAWARE OF THE OLD PATCH UNTIL A FEW YEARS BACK.  READ THE FULL STORY OF THE 45th.
