Description

The 310th Air Commando Squadron (formerly the 310th Troop Carrier Squadron) was stationed at Tan Son Nhut Air Base until March 1965 when it was transferred to Nha Trang and later to Phan Rang Air Base, South Vietnam. The squadron flew C-123 Provider aircraft.

The patch was locally made in Saigon and worn by Captain Harry Heist while assigned to the 315th Air Commando Group. Captain Heist logged time as a navigator with the 310th until the unit’s transfer to Nha Trang and then with the 309th Air Commando Squadron at Tan Son Nhut.
