Anyone know this shoulder patch?

I have what appears to be an unclaimed WWI tunic and leggings uniform (from tailor's shop) with penciled tag with hanger with unreadable owner's name and 95th squadron. I also have a wool top coat with a shoulder patch which may, or may not, be linked with the uniform. After several hours of research I still cannot find anything like this patch. Anyone know of it? Will try to post photo.

I believe that is the US Army 7th Service Command, World War II. Doc

Doc is correct. It is the Army 7th Service Command. The patch was created and authorized in 1941 and ended in 1946. This Army Command was based in Omaha, Nebraska and supported Army bases in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North and South Dakota and Wyoming. It has nothing to do with WW I or the Air Service or the AEF. It sounds like you might have a made up uniform.
