Default My first military button

I got my first military button today. Is there anyway to date this? I googled, but the pictures and info seems endless. I also found a mystery item near the button. These were both found in a fairly small area on the side and toward the back of a school. The school site has been in use since the early 1900ís. The oldest coins I have found there are in the late 30ís and early 40ís. Any help with dating or a better description that I can google would be appreciated. Thanks

Thanks Dan. I think I found one similar online that is block lettering and the U and S are connected the same. The one online dated 1937-1944 which is inline with other finds in the area

Is the mystery item the thing in your hand? Looks like a sink strainer to me!
