I have a German WW1 canteen I bought at an antiques store and some items from my great grandfather including his stopwatch and WW1 postcards and souvenir pictures. I also have a P17 Enfield bayonet given to me by a Korean war veteran, it was his grandfather's, his son said he was getting enough things from his father and grandfather and didn't want it. I have some things from WW2 as well.

Cool. :)

I do remember when I was little we had a German bible at the house. Was a small pocket size one. I was told my moms dad's dad took it off a dead German in WWI. I do remember there was some writing in German inside the front cover. No ideal what it said but I always found it kinda sad to be honest. :dunno:

Cool stuff, I love the MarDiv patches. I did some time with 3rd MarDiv in the 4th Marines, and served alongside 1st MarDiv when I was with MSSG 15 at Camp Pendleton.

Thanks for sharing :)

Not too many of these. It has a tear, but it's a place holder until I find a better one.

B-58A Hustler, 59-2458 (Cowtown Hustler), is on display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio. This aircraft flew from Los Angeles to New York and back on 5 March 1962, setting three separate speed records, and earning the crew the Bendix Trophy and the Mackay Trophy for 1962. The aircraft was flown to the Museum on 1 March 1969. The aircraft is on display in the Museum's Cold War gallery.

I've been heavily addicted to military history, books and memorabilia since the age of 7, but I'm real into military helmets in particular. I didnt get to keep my Army ACH, but I do have an M1 Steel pot with a vietnam era "mitchell" helmet cover which I am very happy to have. The man I got it from was a member of the 101st Airborne Division (not sure which Brigade), the division that I was sent to for my first and last duty station.

I also have a British Mk 6 as well as a Desert Storm era PASGT (with 6 color 'chocolate chip' pattern cover).

The PASGT (With my old ACU division patch and a 7.62x54r round in the helmet band):http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p173/Russianblood/0103132250.jpg

The M1 Steel Pot (With an autographed photo of Adam Baldwin as "Animal Mother" in Full Metal Jacket). Note: The 75th Ranger Rgt patch on this helmet is just a random patch for collecting purposes. I am not, nor have I ever claimed to be a member of this unit:
http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p173/Russianblood/0103132252.jpg

And finally the British Mk 6 helmet with DPM cover:http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p173/Russianblood/0103132253.jpg

Vietnam grouping.

Of interest are the "PRU" flashes, Provisional Reconasiance Units - Part of the "Phoenix Program."

Back in 1976 I used to see those in gun shops for $50-$100, depending on condition. :crying:
