HELP WANTED - Luke AFB and Homestead AFB F-4 era (late-1970s - early 1980s)

For my scarf identification project, I am needing some very specific assistance for certain places and times. Perhaps you can help?

Recently, I was able to acquire the scarves of an individual who was in a command position at both Homestead and Luke during the F-4 era (late 1970s – early 1980s). Unfortunately, they were all unidentified.

At first glance, it is pretty daunting. But, I have been chipping away at it. He had a Pentagon position in the early 1980s, so he must have gone down to Barksdale and acquired the KC-10A scarf (top) and 596th BMS scarf (blue with white stars) then. One of the scarves has a F-104 on it. That would be a 69th TFTS from his time at Luke. The pale blue/blue scarf belongs to the 309th TFTS at Homestead.

That still leaves a bunch more. So, I just wanted to appeal to anyone who was at Homestead or Luke in the late 1970s – early 1980s. I’ve separated out the ones that have some type of unique characteristic (not solid color). Do any of these look familiar?

Were any of these scarves used at Luke or Homestead during that time period?

Scarf 1 is two sided.

Scarf 2 is sewn with two panels.

Scarf 5 has a houndstooth pattern.

Were any solid colored scarves used?

Thank you!
