    @Horace05, my research tells me that this is a 'cap badge' for either the Army or the Air Force..........they were plated metal (Zinc I think) and that is what gives the odd look now.........this must have been from at least the Viet Nam eraif you found it 39 years ago.........nice find..

    Thanks Pop_abides for the info. Wish i could figure out what year this is from or what era.

    that would be nice but they are basically the same now as in WWII, here's a link, scroll down to "Enlisted Men" , I would need to dig to find my Cap but I'm sure the badge is the same from 1996..

    Wait, scratch that, when I was in the National Guard we wore our Unit Crest on our Cap......
    It's tough to get old !
