Cadet Squadron 35
The patch is royal blue circle with a black border. A white, brown and black weasel flies two white and black missiles. The weasel's eyes, mouth and gloves are bright red as is the Arabic numeral "35" on the left central position of the emblem. Groups of three and five gold stars are at the top left of the patch. The aggressive weasel holds a gold thunderbolt in the one gloved hand and a flight control stick in the other. This patch continues the theme of its forerunner a tribute to the F-105 pilots who flew Wild Weasel on surface-to-air suppression missions in Vietnam. The lightning bolt signifies the speed of the Air Force strike capability. The weasel depicts the determination and skill of the Air Force aviator. This third patch for the 35th Squadron was authorized on Sept. 29, 1983, after approval by General Dynamics Corporation, the manufacturer of the missiles.
