Bryant, 

 

Solid berets with obvious use....not souvenir berets. Great eye! It was great meeting and talking with you.

 

Mitch,

 

Killer flag! I bet this guy did the heavy work on larger vessels......I wonder why the embroidered diver has an antenna (or whatever it is)??

 

 

Great Vietnam items guys!!

I had a good show.  Picked up a few patches for my collection, several of which have been on my "want" list for many years.

I only spent a few hours at the show this year, but here's what I got. I'm still kicking myself for not buying a set of collar brass I saw.

(I forget the exact designation of the patch on the bottom right)

 

And I also saw this guy: a size 35R khaki summer jacket. Bullion 8th Army patch on the right shoulder, Bullion Far East Command on the left. Came with 369th Engineers collar brass. But what attracted me, of course, was the Philippine Defense Ribbon.

I also was able to reunite a group I have had for a long time. I bought the papers , photos, and POW mail related to a 59th Coast Artillery soldier from Corregidor about 10 years ago.

I found his Silver Star, Bronze Star, and GCM at the show. All are officially engraved,

Wow Kurt!  Reuniting a grouping after 10 years.  I'd say that's a nice score in itself.  Love the Marine Document btw.
