101st Airborne Division Vietnam Patch
In the mid-1960s, the 1st Brigade and support troops of the 101st Airborne Division were deployed to the Republic of Vietnam, followed by the rest of the division in late 1967. In almost seven years of combat in Vietnam, elements of the 101st participated in 15 campaigns. Notable among these were the Battle of Hamburger Hill in 1969 and Firebase Ripcord in 1970. The 101st was deployed in the northern I Corps region operating against the NVA infiltration routes through Laos and the A Shau Valley. Elements of the division supported the ARVN Operation Lam Son 719, the invasion of southern Laos, in 1971, but only aviation units actually entered Laos.
In 1968, the 101st took on the structure and equipment of an airmobile division. In 1974, the training of the 101st was recognized with the creation of the Air Assault Badge, now a service wide badge of the United States Army.
Our 101st Airborne Vietnam patch is a full color, embroidered military patch. This is the same patch that is supplied to the Military and sold in Military Base Exchanges. This patch would be a great gift idea and a wonderful addition to your patch collection.
