    This is a pin that belonged to my father. He served in the 117th infantry, 30th division in WWII. I have no idea what this pin was for but it was with his other pins and badges from WWII.

      It is called a distinctive unit insignia (DUI). Typically referred to as a unit crest by soldiers.

      This crest does represent the 117th Infantry.
