Picked up this small grouping from retired Lt.Col. who flew as WSO in Vietnam and am looking for info on the following:

The gold colored Weasel pin in center of case, the square Weasel pin, and the hallmark on the B-58 Hustler pin.

Any info is appreciated.

Wasn't there just a thread not too long ago on a patch with the same illustration as the pin? IIRC the patch was from the manufacturer of the Shrike missile. Also can't really see the hallmark but it looks vaguely familiar.

The design was used by the 14th & 6010th WW SQ's

Does anyone know what the gold WW pin was for?

 

 

The Society of Wild Weasels

High Flight

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silver wings;

Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth

Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things

You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hovering there

I've chased the shouting wind along and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air.

Up, up the long delirious, burning blue

I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,

where never lark, or even eagle flew;

and while, with silent, lifting mind I've trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

 

John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

June 9, 1922 – December 11, 1941
