You are buying a new/unused subdued U.S. Air Force patch (measures 3" tall by almost 2.75" wide) from the 1550th Organizational Maintenance Squadron, Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico. 

1550th Organizational Maintenance Squadron (1150 OMS)

"Drawing upon the experience of combat search and rescue in Southeast Asia, the Air Mobility Command activated the 1550th Aircrew Training and Test Wing (1550 ATTW) at Hill AFB, Utah, on 1 April 1971 to serve as a test center and school house for rescue aircrews and technology.  The unit moved to Kirtland AFB on 20 February 1976, the 1550 ATTW continued training helicopter and fixed-wing aircrews in special operations, combat search and rescue, and airlift training conducted with MC-130H, MC-130P, HC-130P, C-12, TH-53A, MH-53J, HH-60G, UH-1N and UH-1H. 

The student aircrews' challenging curriculum included classroom instruction, simulator training, and flying. The flying included transition and instruments, aerial refueling, personnel and equipment airdrops, helicopter hoist training and combat tactics, including night vision goggle flying.

Special operations and combat rescue graduates have served with distinction in every combat situation since training was established.  The latest were Just Cause, Desert Shield, Desert Storm, Desert Calm, Southern Watch, Provide Comfort, and Restore Hope.  The Air Force redesignated the unit as the 1550th Combat Crew Training Wing (1550 CCTW) on 15 May 1984 and then inactivated it on 1 October 1991, transferring the training mission to the 542d Crew Training Wing (542 CTW).  The 542d inactivated in turn on 1 April 1994, transferring the mission to the 58th, now redesignated as a Special Operations Wing (SOW).

The 1550 OMS performed both in-shop and flight line maintenance for special operations, combat search and rescue, and airlift training conducted with the MC-130H, MC-130P, HC-130P, C-12, TH-53A, MH-53J, HH-60G, UH-1N and UH-1H.  The 1550 OMS performed many diverse duties—everything from mounting tires to repairing the most advanced sensor systems."

A great patch to have for your 1550th OMS, 1550th ATTW/CCTW, MC-130H, MC-130P, HC-130P, C-12, TH-53A, MH-53J, HH-60G, UH-1N, UH-1H, Special Operations, Combat Search & Rescue, Kirtland Air Force Base or U.S. Air Force patch collection!
