Are these US patches?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Among with other items I received these and I am struggling to figure out what are they. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

All Vietnam-era, bottom 2 are US.

Top: Unknown, probably one of the 'joke' patches that were made up in country and worn unofficially.

Middle: (blue with wing) is 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team (normally seen with a white on blue AIRBORNE arc above).

Bottom: (red with sword) is US Military Assistance Command Vietnam.

The Ranch Hand patch is a modern reproduction piece.
The 173rd Airborne patch is made after 1968,is a bordered edge piece,as Megan said ,it missing the Airborne tab.
The MACV patch is early war era cut edge piece.
