Went out to the local Flea Market today and will be heading out again Monday to look for more items to add to the collection.

Acquired some photographs, a 1945 Canteen with a strap(Cavalry?), and some miscellaneous insignias aswell as a USN Dogtag.

 

Enjoy

Haha, it's actually my first one and I planned on asking you on your opinion about it. I don't know much about USN/USMC Tags. What do I have?

Thanks. It's a privilege to honor the fallen in some way on Memorial Day and Memorial Day weekend even if it may be just collecting.
