Fun! Well . . . I'd say that, at least, you have a pair of pilot-looking wings that say "SAC" in the center of the shield! -grin- 

 

Seriously, though, Strategic Air Command is the best guess I can think of, too.

There is a similar wing from the Darr Aero Tech shown here.  I suspect that this is a wing from post WWII.  Notice that the clutchback pins seem to be electrosoldered.

pfrost makes a good point on the SAC wings possibly being flight training related. 

 

Below are two possibilities along those lines, both trained military pilots during WW2, but were civilian companies.

Here's the link http://www.usmilitar...-serv-air-corp/

 

and it says, in part, "Serv Air Corporation was the contractor operating the Air Force primary training school at Stallings Air Base in Kinston, NC during the 1950's."
