Post-WWII PS ordnance unit?
Jul 19th, 2009, 1:29am
 
Can anyone identify this shoulder patch?  
 

The colors and symbology suggest that this patch signifies an Ordnance Corps maintenance unit but the design does not match the insignia of any U.S. Army unit discovered so far.  Could this be a Philippine Scouts unit?  Any leads or other assistance shall be most appreciated and gratefully acknowledged.

Two more examples of this shoulder patch:

The motto appears to read:  "Recdemus Gladium"

The second patch shown in the second picture appears to be of the US Army Forces Western Pacific (AFWESPAC) but the tunic seems strange.  I have no idea what the patch in question represents.
