I picked up these pieces of insignia recently and had some questions. I know that the DI to the far right is for the 39th Field Artillery, however, I am unsure as to what the unit to which the center DI belongs. Also, I was hoping someone could inform me as to what unit the wing backing represents and approximately when it dates from. The wings are stamped Metal Arts Co. on the reverse and seem to be post-war, though I'm not certain. Any information would be great!

The DI in the middle is for the 32nd Infantry. I can't help you with the jump wing oval.
