“Sweetheart pins” such as this one would have been worn by someone whose spouse was serving in the military overseas, and were a fashionable way for people on the Home Front to demonstrate their support for the war effort on a personal level. This particular pin belonged to Mrs. E. Jones, the wife of Richard O. Jones, a ground crew member assigned to the 569th Bomb Squadron.
