The 553rd Recon Wing operated out of Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base (1967-1971). The Wing was comprised of two flying squadrons (553rd & 554th RS) and maintenance was provided by the 553rd Electronic Maintenance Sqd. (EMS/AMS), the 553rd Field Maintenance Sqd. (FMS), and the 553rd Organizational Maintenance Sqd. (OMS). This page is limited to patches that depict Bats, Bat-Cats, and Bat-wings.
