BREAKING NEWS: I was moved to tears upon receiving such a loving, meaningful, and generous addition to my pin collection, from my wonderful Uncle Wally @wallymeggs
and Aunt Judy @j.meggs
1. My grandfather Wallace Meggs’ US Navy pin that was on his uniform during World War II. He was stationed on a ship in the Pacific.
2. My grandfather’s 25 year pin for service for the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad (where he worked for over 40 years, initially shoveling coal on a steam engine, then ultimately progressing to be an engineer). 3. My grandfather’s 25 year pin for service for the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers (his railroad union, of which he was elected local chairman for many years). 4. My Uncle Wally’s South Carolina National Guard pin. He was a member for six years, in the Military Police Battalion.
I will lovingly treasure all of these, for as long as I live, for they reflect the wonderful lives, diligence, discipline, and bravery of my grandfather and uncle. #WWII #Navy #ServicePins #25Years #BrotherhoodOfLocomotiveEngineers #Railroad #Locomotive #NationalGuard #SouthCarolina #PinCollection #Pins #Collecting #Collection #EmbellishedDenim #Grandfather #Uncle
