Letter to Art Kannenburg
Dear Art:
We are very busy packing and getting ready for maneuvers but I have these patches so I'll send them on to you. I am not sure what the four leaf blue clover stands for but maybe you could find out. I have asked everyone around here and they have never seen it before.
The red, yellow and blue is the 42nd or Rainbow Division.
The round one with the blue star on the white field is the Army Service of Supply
Sincerely yours
Harold
