From the Museum: Our First CQ/Det Patch!

Posted by

Wings and Things has been around in one incarnation or another for a long time now, beginning with Irma's Monogramming back in 1976. We've also always been family-owned and operated by a bunch of history buffs with a passion for the United States armed forces. We have a great deal of really interesting things squirreled away in our building that we love to show off with impromptu tours, but unfortunately our friends stationed elsewhere don't get a chance to see our cool stuff! So without further ado, I'd like to show you some of the awesome stuff "from the museum."

This patch was our first Carrier Qualifier Detachment (CQ/Det) patch first run in September of 1989, a little over 2 years after we opened as Wings & Things! We unfortunately don't have any other information regarding this patch other than what you see here. These days we keep phone numbers and names of the people who request CQ patches, but this first one is a mystery despite being such a big part of W&T's personal history.
