Cadet Squadron 05

The patch is a white circle bordered in blue. A blue semicircular field, placed at an angle on the upper half of the patch, shows a camouflaged F-4 Phantom jet. A snarling gray wolf?s head rests on the cockpit of the aircraft, and a red numeral "5" is located on the fuselage to the right of the wolf. "Wolfpack" is written on the white field below the aircraft. The patch signifies the squadron?s association with the famous "Wolfpack" Fighter wing, led in Southeast Asia by Brigadier General Robin Olds; the fierceness, professionalism and dedication to duty demonstrated by the wing is emulated the Fifth Squadron Cadets. The F-4 and the wolf indicate the cunning and tenacity used by Gen Olds? forces and the high degree of spirit they demonstrated. This is the second patch in the squadron?s history. Design by James Bisher, class of 1978, it was approved in January 1976.
