Very nice condition patch for DESRON 23 "The Little Beavers." This patch pre-dates January 2021 when the design was changed.
From Wiki: "The mascot of Destroyer Squadron 23 was Little Beaver, a character made famous by Fred Harman's Red Ryder cartoon strip. This cartoon was very popular during the squadron's operations in World War II. Shortly after receiving complaints of the racist caricature remaining in use, submissions were accepted for a new logo. On January 1st 2021, the official Facebook changed its profile to the new logo. Now displaying a large "23", with an arrow crossing behind, and "The Little Beavers" enclosed by a circle, with "Destroyer Squadron" below."
