KMS Hat Eagle

Recommended Posts

This is a federal hat eagle device converted to a Kemper Miltary School hat device. The KMS is soldered to the scroll and the Missouri state crest is bradded on top of the shield. I found this today in Joplin, Missouri.

I have never seen a photo of this style of hat insignia being worn. I have seen several photos with the school coat of arms and the ROTC hat insignia. During what time period would this KMS insignia have been worn?

I've seen this version in a student photo from sometime in the early 1960's.
