Missouri had the 110th between the wars try looking up their lineage, they also had the 430th Pursuit Squadron that was with the Organized Reserves of Missouri.

 

They had an emblem of an American Indian sitting on a horse he has his hand raised to his forehead and is holding an Bow in the other , there is a small ground area below horses hooves and the overall design is on a heart shaped background with a motto scroll below it on an overall round background, the motto had wording "Venimus Vicimus", they were out of Richards Field,Missouri.

I have insignia to the 1st Missouri State Guard Aero Squadron. I was wondering what their uniforms consisted of.

The 110th would be part of the Missouri National Guard, not the State Guard.
