US army patches
US army patches date back to 1942 or before and many of their origins are now unknown, but they are clearly symbolic, for example a knife represented clandestine operations. Not all of them received official approval but they were adopted locally to inform others covertly of the wearers, affiliations. The famous 'victory patch' was created for personnel involved in fundraising campaigns using live weaponry to denote the military strength of the US Army. In 1945 an earlier Hungarian Allied Control Council shield design was adapted as a US army patch by the addition of gold lettering; while later in 1945 the Trieste white fleur-de-lys design on a red shield was taken up by officers and enlisted men to identify American troops serving in that area of north-east Italy.
A vast array of US army patches exists and these were a great source of pride and accomplishment for soldiers helping to create brotherhood and solidarity and in the post-war years, this did not change. Nowadays US army patches are worn to express that continuing sense of national pride.
