Beautiful, large, mid-late 1950's United States Navy VA-34 Japanese-made jacket patch. The lightly worn patch shows the squadron's insignia, an embellished skull with a human skeleton superimposed on the nose with arms outstretched holding paddles that form the skeleton's eyes. The skeleton appears to be 'smoking' the wick to a stick of dynamite with a string of artillery dangling beneath it. The skeleton is centered on a blue diamond that bears a red, vertical wing. The second VA-34, also known as the "Blue Blasters" provided air support for the U.S. Marines during their landings in Beirut, Lebanon in 1958. In 1959, the squadron fired the first Bull Pup missile in the Atlantic Fleet. Reference: VA-34 Blue Blasters
