    there was also silver as well for the wounded

    "The world should know of those who give so much for liberty.
    The dearest thing in all the world to a father and mother---their children."
    Also known as a Service Flag, the blue stands for hope and pride.
    When family members were killed, the blue star was replaced with a gold one representing sacrifice.
    A silver star stood for someone invalided home for wounds sustained overseas.
    Lapel pins also sported the same symbols.

    I adore these items and similiar just as much as my Soviet collection.

    I still have yet to find a SIS with more than three stars and any with a golden star...

    also this as well a "next of kin KIA pin" not WW2 but was instituted after the war

    Awarded to the next of kin of servicemen and women killed in action. Instituted by an Act of Congress in 1947 for retrospective wear for WW1 and WW2 casualties, this badge has been given to the families of the fallen ever since.

    In its original cardboard presentation box with satin lined lid this badge is unitialed, and as such is an un-issued original.

    The reverse of this badge is stamped:

    United States of America

    1 August 1947

    Act of Congress

    In 2008 the US Military authorised this badge for lapel wear by servicemen who had lost immediate family to enemy action.
