    Small pin bottom left is Army Aviation Association pin , it is a foot with wings.
    Do not know what the 900 pin is for.

    It looks like your dad was a Major in the Army Infantry. He also is wearing a Master Aviator badge. I believe the 900 badge was for 900 flight hours as an instructor pilot.

    Thanks Tom I have his student book about all hours in fly in Florida and Texas. Maybe he had 900 hours, What is a Master Aviator Badge? In Korean is work for Infantry, they were using huge guns to shot over Mountains he was too fly over and look where they hit. One time he told me he went over and they almost kill him in the air he said. He was in the Army in 1942 when the Air Force started they wanted him he back to the Army, Air force he told me about he was in both.

    The Army Air force was created from the Army Air Corps in 1941. In 1947 the Army Air force control was removed from the Army and became the US Air Force. A Master Aviator is a individual who had satisfactority completed training and proficiency test conducted by the US Army Aviation Center. A Master Aviator must have 3000 hours in aircraft or 15 years from basic traning date.
