How can a WWll soldier have both a Red Bull Patch AND a Blue Devil patch on his uniform when his discharge papers only state he was a member of the 34th Cavalry Reconnaissance Troop?
The 34th Cavalry Reconnaissance Troop was an organic unit to the 34th Infantry Division, the Red Bulls. The 34th Inf. Div. & the 88th Inf. Div., the Blue Devils, were divisio…ns that served in Italy together in 1944-45. The veteran was probably a member of the 88th first, so that patch is on the right sleeve. Since the 34th Cav. Recon. Trp. was listed on the discharge document, that means he was a member of that unit last. Therefore, he would have the 34th Inf. Div. patch on his left sleeve. As to why he would of went from one unit to the other, most of the time it was because the veteran was wounded or ill. When he recovered, he did not necessarily go back to his original unit. Richard V. Horrell WW 2 Connections.com the patch on the right shoulder is the unit that a man 1st sees combat with. the one on the left is for the unit that he is currently assigned to. if you see combat with a unit and remain assigned to it you can wear that patch on both shoulders.

The history of the 85th Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron can be found at www.5ad.org
A troop is a military unit. A troop comprises three to fiveplatoons. The platoon contains from two to four squads or sections,each of which could have anywhere from eight to… 14 soldiers. Whichmeans the platoon might have more than 50 soldiers, which means atroop might include as many as 250.
One solider is one troop. So 40,000 troops is 40,000 soliders.
A "troop" would normally indicate a single unit of a body of troops. However, the military use is as a subunit equivalent to a "platoon" consisting of two or more squads. …A modern infantry platoon would typically be between 15 and 30 soldiers, and a squad between 8 and 12 soldiers. In World War 2, however, the basic rifle squad consisted of 12 men, and there were usually 3 squads per platoon, which with command personnel made a platoon (troop) 45 to 50 men, commanded by a commissioned officer. (With a squad leader and assistant squad leader, and two or more heavy weapons, such as the BAR and submachine gun, a squad would often split up and engage tactically in 6-man teams.)
The word cavalry means soldiers on horses.
A cavalry soldier is called a Trooper.
The Vietnam War was the first war that the US Army used the "basic" configuration that established the "armored cavalry" of today. During that war, the US Army Armored Cav uni…ts were deployed to Vietnam in Regiments (only one full regiment, the 11th ACR was deployed) and about 10 Armored Cav Squadrons, and a few armored Cav Troops (A, 4/12 Cav as one example). The Full regiment in Vietnam (11th ACR) consisted of 3 Sqd's, containing 3 or 4 ground troops (A, B, C) and and air troop (helicopters) and a tank company. Individual Armored Cav Sqd's consisted of about the same, MINUS the tank companies. Example: the full regiment had a company of 17 Patton tanks. The Sqd's did not. The typical Armored Cav Sqd consisted of about 3 ground troops and 1 air troop. The Troops (A, B, C,) consisted of M113 ACAVs and M551 Sheridan tanks (Armored Reconnaissance Assault Vehicles). The air troop usually consisted of UH-1 Iroquois, OH-6 Cayuse, AH-1 Cobras and OH-58 Kiowa helicopters. While the whole sqd was commanded by an LTC, the air troop was commanded by a MAJ, while the ground troops were commanded by a CPT. A full bird COL commanded the full regiment (the 11th ACR was commanded by COL George S. Patton, son of WWII Patton). Whenever you see photographs of Sheridans and ACAVs together in one Vietnam War photo, you're looking at a US Armored Cav picture.
