This brooch bears a U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps insignia centerpiece on a modern brooch. 

Branch Insignia

The U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps branch insignia is a gold-tone eagle with wings spread perched on a wheel. The wheel is symbolic of transportation and the thirteen gold stars represent the original colonies and the origin of the Corps during the Revolutionary War. The sword and the key are a reference to the military forces and the control of military supplies by the Quartermaster Corps. The insignia was originally approved by the Quartermaster Department in 1895. After World War I, the earlier design, with the eagle's head superimposed on one wing, was changed to depict the head above the wings.
