    Ryan's Raiders aircrews were assigned to the 34th TFS from April 22, 1967, to June 1, 1967. In an attempt to meet the success of the Navy's A-6 aircraft with their superior radar, the Air Force developed a training program for twenty-five F-105 pilots, which would qualify them to fly all-weather combat missions in North Vietnam. The program was originally called "Project Northscope", then "Operation Commando Probe" and finally "Commando Nail". Initial crews, however, referred to the program as "Ryan's Raiders". Vintage original Vietnam war machine-embroidered patch, size is 4" by 4" - used condition. Patch has "cheesecloth backing. Very rare.
