Vintage Pin Collection + 1. 2 sons in the Army pin

In World War II, when mothers were separated from their loved ones, many began to wear pins as a way to demonstrate their patriotism and sacrifice.  Most recognizable are the “son-in-service” banners with a blue star representing each son, husband or daughter serving in the military. Blue stars had been used on son-in-service banners since World War I and were meant to represent hope and pride in those serving in the military.     nationalww2museum.org
