Can anyone identify these pins?

Article about: I know the one in the box is US, and one is French. I have no idea what they were given for, don't even have a clue on the wings. Thanks in advance!

    Hi Steve, I thought that was a French paratrooper design? It is the French foreign legion para badge.

    Looks a fairly modern issue IMHO

    I also have no idea on the other two, sorry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    U.S. basic Supply/Fuels Specialist Badge - 'Sta-Brite' finish type - 1980's/90's.
    I'm guessing the Pilot wings are Mexican.........

    The pilots wings look like US Army Air Force command pilot wings, but not like any i've seen or can find on the net. It might be somewhere to start looking though.

    The pilots wings are I am almost sure are for the Philipines probably made within the last 10 years

    That's it - they are Philippino - definitely not US wings.........
