Headed south for my daughters college graduation. We made a one day/one night stop in New Orleans. Of course I had to check the local craigslist/antique shop info. Being that we were going to be near in the tourist section i.e. Bourbon Street, I wasn't too confident that I'd scrounge up any items. On the way out I saw a shop we didn't hit, so around the block we went and I popped in. This is what I got!

 

* 6th Convalescent Center - Vietnam patch. This is mounted to an aluminum backing with large flap like it would be slid over something.  

 

* A pair of WW2 Gunny stripes

 

* A couple of variations of WW2 Far East AF patches

and

* A very cool Lucite, 2 ribbon bar, with Berlin Airlift and Occupation w/airplane device. It is marked  Otto Lachman, Bremerhaven, Friesenstr. 30, GES.GESCH
