Most Aerospace Defense Command patches are small. Found this larger (4.5"+) that is from the transitional time when Air Defense Command was phased out. Now there is a large version that is basically the old ADC design with the "Aerospace Defense Command" script. This version actually has the orbiting satellites.
Pretty sure it goes back to WWII. I think the F-106 connection was its control of the 14th Air Force, 73rd Air Division and the 4756th Air Defense Wing. The Command stood down in 1968 and I think totally dismantled in the 80's. I know it had direct ties to ADC from 1948-50.
I must be really old. I remember going TDY from McGuire AFB to Tyndall AFB in 1960's. I was there from 1964-1967. The old C-123, C-119, and C-124 from Air Guard wore that patch. I have been down with a bad cold all week. Bad cough, fever and the big "D". Starting to feel a little better.

Diamondback: Wave returned, Mike, though different vintage--my grandfather was a Green Dragon around '65-'70ish including Osan; one of the last out of NATO Chateauroux and a lot of that planeload ended up posted at McChord.
