It's been pretty dry lately but today was good. Responded to a Craigslist ad for the Vietnam stuff. While leaving, I saw there were some tag sales across the street. The first two blocks had nothing, but on the third and last I found this nice Tank Destroyer jacket with paperwork, patches and negatives (more photos of the group will be posted later this week when I put it in the groupings section). All comments are welcome.image.jpg

Last is the group ID'd to Sgt. John A Calabrese. Based on all of the papers, I believe he was with the 610th TD battalion in Basic Training, was transferred to the 603rd after, and then lastly to the 634th towards the end of the war. Also are pictures of my favorite two patches in the lot. A one eyed cat and a greenback 1st ID.image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

Nice group! The TD SSI is neat.
