    The branch insignia is Chemical Corps. The uniform is still currently used, so Vietnam era is appropriate. The patch is the 1st Armored Division, not the 2nd. The uniform itself carries the rank of Sergeant, and the owner had at least three years of service, signified by the single hash mark. The number on the label is simply a laundry mark.

    I would also say that the 1st Infantry Division patch was a combat patch, so Vietnam would still be appropriate.

    I think the hash mark means 2 years because I had 12 years , so I should have 6 marks .
