With their emblems of American and foreign military branches and rank, and patriotic devices clearly displayed, these lockets, bracelets, wings of love, In-service pins, "Remember Pearl Harbor" items. Victory pins, cards, pillows, banners, necklaces, and compacts became keepsakes representing loved ones and a display of patriotism.
