Would appreciate any help on identifying what this pin is affiliated with. It was in with my Dad's other military pins and patches though I think it has more the look of some sort of school honor society. There is nothing printed on the back. He served in the Army's 5th Armored Division in the mid 1950's and was stationed in Germany for a year.

    Found my answer! I dug out Dad's discharge papers and found his unit number. Thanks to google I now know that this is the unit crest for the 194th FA Bn (155mm)(Towed) which became the 254th FA Bn in 1955.

    What that Dui represents is the 97th Field Artillery Bn. Appears to be foreign made.

    I don't know the unit, but that isn't the 97th FA Bn.

    What makes you think it is foreign made? I don't see anything that would suggest non US maker.
