I hope you enjoy viewing my war room as much as I've enjoyed filling it up.
90% of what you will see was directly purchased from a vet.
My main interest is WWII airborne and army aircorps,
I also like anything that has some type of artwork added to the item: A-2's, duffle bags, footlockers, etc.

Beautiful War Room! I could look at that for a long time since uniforms are my thing too. Where did you get the wooden display cases resting flat all over the room? They are very nice!

I must say, your room reminds me of mine a bit. Due to limited space, Everytime I get a new uniform that is better than something else on display, it goes into my closet and is displayed there. When the closet fills, the least important uniform to me goes up for sale. I can only imagine you have a similar system being a uniform collector with a full room and full racks of uniforms.

Thanks Guys, in 30 years you can find alot of stuff. I've always felt if you can't share and show your collection whats the point of having it. I've just recently discovered military forums and I have really enjoyed seeing others collections, I just wish my photos had come out a little clearer. Thanks Jon

I enjoy that USMC corner, and the German helmet with the death head, I've only seen a couple of those. NICE!

Awesome collection! I think you managed to fill your room to the max without the feeling that it's overdone or cluttered.
I noticed the odd buttons on the 82nd Lieutenant Ike jacket, are they cloth covered?
Again awesome war room
