The meaning of the 8th Photo's emblem
"The Indian represents the first reconnaissance squadron to leave the US after the outbreak of WWII. (A Flight of the 8th PRS departed for Australia in April 1942.) The Camera represents the squadron's photo mission. The Hatchet is for the Japs and the Lightning Bolt represents the P-38 (F-4). The Palm Trees are for the Pacific Islands. The 8 ball is for the squadron's number."
(HUGE fan of WWII history in general just our way to honor some of those men) WOULD love to expand on this with more designs stay tuned.
