During World War II, the 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment (507th PIR) was a regiment of the 82d Airborne Division and, later, 17th Airborne Division of the United States Army. The regiment was initially formed at Camp Toccoa, Georgia on 20 July 1942. It would participate in three operations during the war: D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge and Operation Varsity.
This is a variation of the 'unauthorized' Spider Monkey pocket patch that was produced and worn during WWII by the members of the 507th. We have distressed the image to give it the war torn look from the reputation earned during WWII.
Now known as the Unit that run Airborne School, the 507th continues to train thousands of paratroopers every year from every branch of the DoD.
