Boca Raton Army Air Field - WWII Top Secret Field

Boca Raton Army Air Field - WWII Top Secret Airborne Radar R&D BaseThis is another patch from my childhood collection. It is 4" in diameter. The Boca Raton Army Air Field (BRAAF) was the key site during WWII for Airborne Radar research, development, testing & training. Between 1942 and 1947 over 100,000 troops were stationed at this extremely Top Secret Army Air Force Field in the then small town of Boca Raton, FL. In 2005 a very interesting book was written about this place called "Small Town, Big Secrets" by Sally J. Ling. I have included a picture of the book. The book details the BRAAF history in narrative and vintage photographs. This auction is for the patch only.
