Original World War Two US Army Air Forces 2nd Air Force Shoulder Sleeve Insignia Patch.

The Second Air Force was constituted as Northwest Air District on 19 October, 1940, and activated on 18 December 1940. Re-designated 2nd Air Force early in 1941, it served as both an air defense and a training organization during 1941. Afterwards it was engaged chiefly in training units and replacements for heavy, and later, very heavy bombing operations.

On a blue square, a golden orange falcon with jesses in striking attitude below a white star bearing a red disc. (Approved 16 Dec 1943. This insignia was superseded by another on 19 Oct 1954.)
