Hey everyone. My name is Kevin. I'm glad to have stumbled on this forum. A good friend of mine is a WWII collector and I'm currently helping him restore an M2A1-7 flamethrower for display. I may also get involved with helping to setup displays at a new museum in the area.
In addition to this, my grandfather Roland Paeth served in the Philippines in WWII. He passed away before I was born, but I've taken to digging through as much as I can of his experience in the war. Most of the information I have found was unknown by my family prior since he did not talk about the war much from my understanding. As for my WWII collection, I currently have the bayonet that my grandfather carried while being cut off from his regiment for several days during the landing on Corregidor. He was part of Company K, 34th Infantry Regiment, assigned to the 24th Infantry Division. There is a good chance I may pick up a few more things as I learn more about his time there.
Anyway, glad to be a part of the forum and I look forward to learning and helping where I can.
