ARTIFACT: Great Korean War circa 1952, 21st Troop Carrier Squadron (Heavy) jacket patch. This example is large, fully embroidered, and made in Japan. The center depicts a bumble bee wearing a flight helmet and goggles with the USAF emblem on its wings carrying items in its 'hands' in multicolored embroidered detail and surrounding it reads: "21st T.

In December of 1952, the 21st Troop Carrier Squadron (Heavy) was relieved of combat duties.
