Cloth patch, 4 1/2+" in diameter, unit unidentified
Belonged to my uncle, Sgt. Richard M. Richey, US Army, clerk typist assigned in 1945 to the Edgewater Hotel, an R&R facility on the beach in Santa Monica, California. The "relaxed" plane on the patch makes me think it is related to R&R. He had previously been assigned to Tinker Army Airfield, Oklahoma. Prior to that he had served at the glider training center in Waco, Texas and Ellington Field, Texas.
