Dress uniform patch for the United States Army's 3rd Infantry Division.

During World War II, Audie Murphy proudly wore the 3rd Infantry Division Patch from 1943 until 1945. During this period, he served in North Africa, Sicily, Italy, France, and Germany. Audie Murphy was not the only Medal of Honor recipient from the 3rd Infantry Division either. During World War II a total of 36 Medal of Honors were earned by "Rock of the Marne" soldiers. As a result, 3rd Infantry Division soldiers proudly proclaim themselves as being the most decorated combat division during World War II.

Combat uniform patch for the Texas National Guard's 36th Infantry Division.

After World War II, Audie Murphy continued to serve with the armed forces in the Texas National Guard as part of the 36th Infantry Division. This particular patch is identical to the one Audie wore while in the Texas National Guard and was worn proudly by Sergeant Eric James before President Reagan at the 40th Anniversary of D-Day Ceremonies in France. The image of the patch was provided by the Texas Military Forces Museum.
