Army Air Forces Aircraft Warning Service Observer Pin

Dublin Core

Title

Army Air Forces Aircraft Warning Service Observer Pin

Subject

World War II
Standards of Learning USII.7c

Description

Many young men were absent during this time, leaving young women to take up certain tasks and participate in a home front effort driven by rationing, Victory Gardens, and other activities, such as the Aircraft Warning Service volunteer program. This is another pin given to Ms. Mary E. Wright Mills Richardson for her volunteer service as an observer for the Army Air Forces Aircraft Warning Service. These pins were a source of great pride for many citizens, as it provided them with a sense of involvement in the war-winning effort.
