The Lockheed P-38 Lightning Service Pin

It was a badge of honor
by Marv M.

During World War II, my mother-in-law worked at Lockheed as a "Rosie the Riveter." She had given me her pin of a Lockheed P-38 with the corporate star and red dot in the center. Many years later, while working at Lockheed as an engineer, I wore that pin on my badge holder. An older gentleman approached me and said, "You're not old enough to have earned that pin." My son-in-law now works at Lockheed Martin in California.
