This badge was worn by BG George G. Lundberg, 010579 - It was made in 1921, a duel-wing Balloon Observer badge with stylized letters "US" in the center shield. This badge was worn only by Balloon Observers who received their training while stationed at Scott Field, Illinois in 1921. No more were made after 1921 because it did meet regulations.
