If anyone knows what this patch represents, leave a comment. I was unable to find it online.
Update - Crossett Library was kind enough to find out. It's a 4th Air Force.
Update 2 - Phoebe (via Facebook) has a bit more info:
WW2 era US Army Air Corps 4th Air Force. They were the defence force for the Southwestern and Lower Midwest US HQ'ed out of March Field in California.
