    Hi! I found these going through some of my dad's thing's. he passed away 3 years ago and I have no idea how old these items are and what they are. the only thing I know is it was very cool finding them. I'm wanting to make a shadow box but want to know what's what so I do it right. Thank you in advance for your time and help!

      OK the one with the motto "Prepare for Combat" is the 82nd Airborne Artillery pin / WWII . The pin with the white shield and 3 lamps on it is the "Command and General Staff College" and the blue one with the crescent moons is the 71st Infantry Division New York National Guard. There is a Major rank pin. the DTA tie pin I haven't a clue.. I hope that helps. You can Google any of the units I listed for a little history on each...

      I stand corrected.. The "Prepare for Combat" crest is the Army Air Forces Eastern Flying Training Command (a la 'Tuskegee Airmen' and Tuskegee Army Air Field) at Maxwell Alabama.

      The pin in the form of a ribbon with "Be Prepared" with a knot hanging from it is a rank badge for second class scout in the Boy Scouts of America.
