In addition the Division supported 5 Air Force in the development planning and coordination of requirements for future Air Force operations in the Ryukyu Islands and tactical operations in the Far East. 313 AD maintained assigned forces at the highest degree of combat readiness supporting numerous PACAF exercises such as Cope Thunder Cope Diamond Team Spirit and Cope North.

This patch dates from the 1960s.

Tom Sullivan has confirmed that this patch was issued to those who graduated from the 313 Air Divisions training school at Bishagawa Okinawa. The first team members were awarded the shoulder patch in 1968. Tom was one of the first to get one. Thanks again for the information Tom
