I have my Grandfathers WWII Company Patch on my vest, its the Cross of Lorraine 79th Infantry badge, along with his service bars

Nobody has ever gave me shit, couple vets asked me about it in Sturgis and they were proud people still cared, once I explained his Puprle Heart, Bronze Star, etc.... Put it on and wear it proud

Like said already-you are above board and honest.
No one is going to accuse you of being a Puffed Chest or a Stolen Valor candidate.
Those I extremely hate !
We Viet vets are few and far between yet now everyone is one....
Funny how that changed..
Anyway -
Wear your patch proud.
Encourage others to serve.

As a 1st Gulf War veteran and many other deployments I have collected patches from all branches of service, NATO forces, etc...I do not have a problem with that, wear it with pride and dignity....Share your story to other Vets and make your grandfather proud...Salute.

Im a Marine , I dont care what you wear , Hell I wouldnt know one patch from the other , a few Marines patches maybe . Honoring your grandfather is awesome , He fought for our country so you could have that right to wear that patch . As long as your not telling everyone you were what the patch says you should be fine, When someone asks , just say Im honoring my grandfather proudly!

There are assholes out there who wear patches that they dont rate , if your "gaining from it" in some way you got a wake up call . Dont say you were a Green Beret and wear there patch unless you were, the major reason being in the Motorcycle world or MC world , its full of vets and theyll spot a fake a mile away and when they do watch out it wont be pretty!

Old post but Iím with the other vets and it wouldnít offend me. I have my rockers for every ship I deployed on just above the pocket, and I have my dads AFA pin (c/o 75) on my shoulder.

Yawl making me feel old with all the grands and great grands in WW2 ..

dad was AAF B29 crew

his brother was either 101st or 82nd AirBorne , forget now , but he was in France , speaking fluent French , he worked with the underground

mother's brother was a medic , he hit the beaches on D Day and he told a very unsanitized version of the way it was ..

A cousins father in law was a B17 pilot , they were lost over the Channel March 8 1943 , coming back from a raid on marshalling yards in France .. ( his wife was an infant when her dad was lost ) .. Have lots of articles on the loss and the crew members .. 305BG and I want to say 364SQ .. There were four SQ's with 305BG ..364 , 365 ,366 and 4xx , have to look and see , going by memory .. Flew out of Chelveston , originally were at Grafton Underwood ..

At the time it was mathematically impossible for a crew member to survive 25 missions , this was before the Mustang arrived .. I forget the exact number now , but the 8th lost over 40,000 airmen in three years ...

Here a picture of a patch I had made to honor my dad who passed a couple of years ago. He was a Korean War veteran and a survivor of the Battle of Chosin Reservoir. I think it’s a great way to honor your grandfather.
