    Can anyone ID this Mililtary Button found in Hawaii?

    Aloha
    I found this Military button on Memorial Day, hunting with my girlfriend Millie. Is it from WW 2 or could it be from a Royal Hawaiian Guard? It was found about 3 inches deep and next to it was an old belt buckle. It looks like a lawnmorrow got to it at sometime.

    I think your correct, Fort Shafter is near by and I once found a Good Conduct Medal in the same park.

    U.S. Army "Great Seal" general service button. As noted, likely World War II period; however, the same basic design has remained in use since 1902. Worn by members of all branches of Army except officers of the Corps of Engineers.
