    I have these two pins that belonged to my late Grandfather. He served during the tail end of WWII.
    I haven’t been able to finding any information for which they stand for. Any help would be much appreciated!

      One on the left is a distinctive unit insignia (dui) or simply called a "unit crest". It is for the 206th Coast Artillery (later Field Artillery). They were Federalized prior to WW2 and sent to the Aleutian Islands, Alaska and participated in the Battle of Dutch Harbor. There is a lot of information available online.

      Beautiful war mementos from your grandfather, perhaps he acquired the second pin with bear while he was in Switzerland, both pins are really great

      The "tail end of WWII" was not a preferred time to arrive. After is always better . LOL !
