These pins were sold by both the Armed Forces and countless other retail outlets for soldiers to give to their wives, girlfriends, and mothers to wear while they were deployed overseas. The decorations of each, of course, generally denote the branch of service or duties that were being performed by their loved one. These decorations are much more akin to jewelry than an actual medal, but their military connection is immediately obvious.

If you are looking for a good Valentine's Day gift, look no further!
