I'm hoping to find someone who remembers my father, William G. Adams. He may have went by Sonny or Bill. He passed away in 2017. He never spoke if Vietnam so I have little information. I believe he served 4 terms there. I did find a picture if him and some friends with the 2nd Infantry Division patch. They all have what appears to be camo scarves around their necks. Unfortunately I can't read their names. Thank you for any info you can share. And an especially big THANK YOU for your service. Sincerely, Benita Adams

Some questions about the "patch".

Was it in the shape of a shield, with an Indian Head in the center?  Worn on left sleeve?

Awaiting your reply.

Hi Benita,
The First of The Twenty Eight 1/28th of The Big Red One wore a camo scarf, with a Black Lion in one corner of the scarf. 
Is their anyway you could post the picture on this message board?
A Big salute to your dad, May He Rest in Peace.

No lion or black scarf. The picture is black and white so it's hard to tell. Sorry, not able to upload a picture. The patch on left sleeve is a shield with an Indian head. I'll keep working on uploading the picture. Thanks ❤

That patch represents the  2d Infantry DIVISION.  We are the 2d Infantry REGIMENT, a part of the 1st Infantry Division at that time.  The 2d Division served in Korea at that time.  Good luck in your quest.

Thanks BBC. So this means he probably was stationed in Korea before he went to Nam. This helps me alot. Thanks for this and thank you for your service
