Comments: I recently purchased a patch that reads:

"A"BATT.88thABN.AABN

followed by:

187 RAKKASAN

Can anyone tell me exactly what the "A"BATT.88thABN.AABN stands for. I assume that it is Alpha Battery, 88th Airborne Air Assault (or anti-aircraft") Battalion, but I'd like to know for sure.

Thanks
