Description

Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, many citizens became fearful of additional attack on American soil. While many could not enter into military service, they opted instead to volunteer some of their time to aid from their hometown. A pin and identification card were given to volunteers of the Aircraft Warning Service. “During World War II, I served as an airplane spotter, one day each week from 4 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at the Old Coppage Farm on the Yanceyville Road, not far off Route #208.” This is a quote from Mrs. Mary E. Wright Mills Richardson, then Ms. Mary "E" Wright, who donated this pin to the Louisa County Historical Society.
