The Hat In The Ring was the insignia for Eddie Rickenbacker's WW I squadron.   When he later founded Eastern Air Lines, this symbol was carried forward as an award for loyal service.  This particular pin was awarded at 20 years of service.   Alas, it is my wife's, as I never made it to twenty years.
