the GHQ reserve patch was worn at Toccoa, for small units not yet assigned to a division, the Airborne Command patch was created for small, non-divisional Airborne units. As such, the 506th wore this patch for a few months in early 1943, while stationed at Camp Mackall, N.C. This was after they completed jump school, but before they joined the 101st Airborne Division at Ft Bragg, N.C., becoming members by attachment. At that time, the 506th began to wear the eagle patch.
The 63d Regional Support Command is responsible for the base and administrative support of all United States Army Reserve units throughout the seven-state region of southwestern United States including California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas. Although the 63d Regional Readiness Command located in Los Alamitos, CA was not authorized to carry the lineage of the 63d Infantry Division, the creation of the new 63d Regional Support Command in Moffett Field, CA authorizes it to inherit the lineage and the bi-color red and blue background 63d Infantry Division flag as an exception to policy. The unit was deactivated on 6 December 2009 and replaced by the 79th Sustainment Support Command, and was reactivated as a regional support command.

When my Dad was a teenager, he, my uncle and my late grandpa opened up a little joint at the Lake of the Ozarks on the Bagnell Dam strip here in Missouri. They had a few pool tables, some pinball games and a bowling game similar to shuffle board but on a smaller scale. I've always heard about this place but never got to see it. They were only open for one summer, the Summer of '69. The only thing he's had for all these years were memories and three photos. So between my brother and I, we put our heads together and decided to get him something he could wear proudly. I designed the graphics and between us we got it printed just in time for his birthday.
