The U.S. 222 pin is a post 1937 US Army collar insignia (Evident from it having periods after the U and S), which makes sense as it's for the 222nd Infantry Regiment active 1943-1946, they fell under the 42nd Infantry Division (AKA the Rainbow Division), the unit served with distinction during WWII.

The cross rifles is an US Army Infantry tie bar/clip whether official use or veteran use I don't know, as I'm not well versed on US Army uniforms.

There is what appears to be a generic tie bar/pin. Not seeing it being military related.

The Torpedo is from another tie bar/pin, so possibly Navy/Sub/Torpedo Man related. Again I don't know if it's an official or veteran one.

A couple watch chains.

I'll defer to others on the button, as I can't tell the difference of one from another when dating them.
