The third patch is from the Security Police/Air Police, Civilian Service Unit of the USAFE in Germany. Probably the older version when they weren't wearing the BDU/ABU's.

The first one is the 88th Inf Div patch. There should also be a small banner above reading TRUST for : TRIESTE UNITED STATES TROOPS
