Unit "Pocket Patches" or "Drops"

Your Webmaster still has these "pocket patches", or "drops"! I believe they were designed to be worn when wearing the Class A or Class B uniform. I bought them at our little PX Annex, sometime during my assignment with the 93rd Evacuation Hospital, although I never did get to wear them while I was assigned!
