773rd Field Artillery Battalion

Recommended Posts

This is believed to date from between 1946 and 1952. Some believe it to be a cloth DI but at 2.5 inches tall its somewhat big for that.

 

Full motto is "Long and Deadly"

While cleaning out my Grandmother's house we found 3 of these pins. Same thing.

I know my Grandfather was in an artillery group, but he died before I knew him, so I don't know anything else about them.
