Default Unknown US badges

Good evening,

do you know these US badges ? The first one is connected, I think, with 69th Infantry Rgt NY National Guard. The last one is a ROTC but there are many High Schools beginning with C.

The 14ths badge is similar but not the one in the first post, which is USAAF Headquarters Command, and possibly a reproduction.

Marc, you're right. My error. If it is meant to be a WW2 patch I can assure you it is not, and that it is a very modern made patch. First off, no WW2 patch had a merrowed edge that I know of, except for one - the 501st Parachute Regimental patch.

The weave of the blue body is way off for WW2. I would not be surprised if the back was not plastic coated, which was never done in WW2.

Thank you for your reply.

Here is a picture of the back. Not plastified, but no doubt it is a modern copy
