Default Unknown shoulder patch

A friend of mine has a photo of his father who has passed away and we were trying to figure out his shoulder patch. He was a lifer and had served in the 25th, 7th and 2nd ID.that my friend knows of. Any help would be appreciated.

I think it is the 25th as well. Looks like a color touched up photo and that may account for the disparity.

Yes, 25th ID and the DIs are from the 14th Inf Regt (2nd Bn, which was assigned 25th ID in RVN).
