    Hi Susan,
    I have never seen any US Military badge like this one. I'm curious to see what some others have to say.

    Strange. Looks home-made. Nothing like any US insignia I have
    ever seen. Perhaps a piece of costume jewelery that only
    resembles some type of military insignia.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

ID:	355712Hello all. i am new to this site. Thank you for your help.
    This belonged to my granduncle. Bill. he was in the US army 1943 onwards. i know very little and hoping to get his records ! ! !. this badge came via his sister many years ago (All have passed away now) he was in France and left the army as a Stg. He would not talk to his family about the war. All his war bits Medals ? including the flag given at his burial went missing when his sister in the States Passed away and i am trying to put together his story. I think they were two cloth patches, a red diamond shape here in the attic that were with this badge.

    A 'red diamond' patch is for the US 5th Infantry Division,
    They were known as the Red Devils or 'Roten Teufel'
    in German.........
