MANY THANKS to Jason Parker for your support! Jason created the 506th Patch to help raise funds for Jim “Pee Wee” Martin (G/506) 100th Birthday Jump Fest at Skydive Greene County in Xenia, Ohio!
During WW2 the 101st Airborne Division wore stencils in the form of playing card suits on their helmet to easily distinguish between units, and make it easier to quickly gather together on the battlefield. Many units across the US Army used helmet markings (including the 82nd Airborne), but none have survived as tradition like that of the 101st. Throughout Vietnam and into today, the 101st Airborne Division continues the tradition by wearing a card suit “patch” on their helmets to distinguish between units.
