Don't know what these patches represent, but any help identifying what they are would be fantastic. Thanks in advance!

    The patches with the "A" are shoulder patches for the US First Army. The one with the eagle is the rank insignia for Specialist 7. That was a rank insignia for someone who worked at the same pay grade as a Sergeant First Class, but did not have supervisory authority outside of his specialty. That rank ceased to exist after 1978. The insignia is beside it is upside-down. It's the rank insignia for a Sergeant First Class. I would guess all these patches came from the 1960s or 70s.
