Military Patches on my Riding Vest
I would like to solicit your advice. My Grandfather recently passed away. He served in the Army from 1943-1945. I want honor him and his service by putting a patch on my vest as a memorial to him. I never served and do not want to disrespect any veteran by having a patch that would imply that I was in the Service. So my question is what patch or patches can I wear that would honor him and his service, but would not give a false impression that I have served? Or am I over thinking this, and I should put an Army patch under my Flag patch and call it good?
Just for reference he served in Patton's Third Army, the 558th FAB (Field Artillery Battalion). I know he was assigned to the 3rd gun in the A battery. I don't know the proper name for his role but he always told me he was the guy who would put his fingers in his ears and yelled “FIRE”.
Thanks for your input,
