I picked these up at a flea market. Any info such as Rank, branch of service, and any value will be appreciated. Pictures 8&9 and 10&11 are front & back of the same pins.

You should have put numbers on them.
Most are Army. Tank corp, medical corp, engineers, major,
One Soviet.
Knowledge is power could be Navy or CG.

Two of the enamel ones are unit mottos.

Best I can do.

If I remember right, the pistols are JAG, Legal Corps, or something related to military law. A lawyer wears them.

And Army lawyers (Judge Advocate General) wear a laurel wreath with a crossed saber and a feather pen (why they are known as feather merchants)

With the possible exception of the Russian pin, I don't think you have anything there that couldn't be found in a pawn shop or surplus store at nominal prices.
