The boards on the right seem to be pre-WWII, but owner is unknown.

Pssst..I really want to get a tanker's helmet, but don't want to pay an arm or a leg for one. Let me know if you know of a good deal!

Some new additions! Wish I could attach a name to this one The ribbons are beautiful, and the patches seem to be unnused. Sadly, the striker is not one of those with a date sewn on the reverse.

I got the Imjin patch without "DMZ" on the bottom at the Raleigh Militaria Show earlier this month. When I was paying for it, the dealer said the $4 I paid for it was a really good deal, and another on-looker commented that that kind was more rare. Anyone have any additional info on the styles?

Several years ago, I bought a group of framed documents from MG Roland Gleszer, who retired as CG of the Military District of Washington. Turns out, that when he was Assistant Division Commander of the Second Infantry Division when that outfit went back to Korea, he came up with the idea of the Imjin Scouts. This is his promotion cert. to BG (temporary). I also have his original officer's commision, too.

Here's a grouping I found at a flea market in Charleston back when I was a cadet at that bastion of leadership and knowledge, The Citadel. Sadly, it is unnamed

Several months back, I got some things from a lady in Indiana who had gotten some stuff from a storage unit that had been abandoned (probably didn't pay the rent, or the owner passed away). I got it for $60! I tried to research it, and it seemed most likely that it belonged to 1LT Howard Grimes, KIA, pilot in the 359th Fighter Sqdn, 370th FG, 8th Army Air Corps. Am still waiting to hear from the NPRC. If anyone can offer up any more information or alternatives for likely candidates, I would be grateful!
Additionally, if anyone has a brooch and drape that would be appropriate for this, I would love to make a deal! Please PM me.
