Navy Squadron Patches: These patches were used by the US Navy Reserve Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 209 in the US Navy, nicknamed the "Star Warriors". This squadron has been around since 1977. The bottom patch belonged to a pilot named Jim Whitfield of the "Star Warriors". These are undoubtedly unlicensed pieces and were obtained from a collector on Whidbey Island, Washington. The VAQ-209 Squadron is currently stationed in Washington, DC.
