Default Army patch ID help

Not good pictures but all I got. This is from a picture my dad sent my mom on one of his tours in Vietnam. He will not talk about it so I really donít want to ask.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Really long shot but his name was Tommy Eugene Dale

Definitely the 4th Infantry Division. Also known as "Ivy" or "Poison Ivy" as a play on the IV (Roman numerals for the number "4"). This is a historic outfit:

He will talk about it just not his part. He served for 33 years and very military.

My Senior Drill Sergeant in Basic had the 4th ID patch as a combat patch from Vietnam.
