    As for insignias and patches of dad's, here what I have loose that was in an envelope with "mine" written on it by dad.

    He was a Staff Sgt at his discharge.

    I am not at all familar with the last 2. I do not know if they were really his or not.

    It would appear that the 702nd Armor Battalion was assigned to the 80th Infantry Division. Hope this info is useful.

    Hello,

    The 702 Tank Battalion was assigned to the 80th Infantry Division. The 80th Division patch is a WWI-30's patch

    Gary, If you have your fathers DD Form 214(discharge Papers) take a look on them. It will give all awards, rank and other pertinant information about his service.

    is a modern repro by the looks of it.........
