Hello all, my name is Clif! I am a 24 year old collector of war memorabilia; mostly WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. My passion for collecting really took off when I was little. My grandfather was airborne infantry during WWII and gave me all of his gear before his passing in 2000. My uncle was also a ranger with the 75th in Vietnam, but he never talked about it much. I myself served with 2nd battalion, 75th ranger regiment from 2011 through 2015 as an indirect fire infantryman; with combat tours to Afghanistan. My passion for restoring and maintaining history is genuine. I love my nation more than anything and the treasures that come with it. Thank you all for viewing and I look forward to seeking help in the future from my older and wiser collectors.
