In addition to the Purple Heart display here: http://www.usmilitar...-heart-display/

 

I was also fortunate to display some of my non-PH collection at the Palm Springs Air Museum from last Thursday through this Sunday. It is my third year down there and the museum continues to blow me away. Their greatest resource, in my opinion, isn't even the amount of aircraft they have on display, but the hundreds incredible docents and volunteers, many of whom served in the military.

I was at the museum in the middle of October of last year. Great museum and was fortunate to see their flying P-51 taxi up to the hanger just as I walked out of the Korea/Vietnam wing. I was especially impressed with their Pearl Harbor diorama.

What a fantastic display of a great collection!I loved touring this museum in the 90s. I have to say my favorite uniform you have displayed is that S2/c dress white jumper!! I'd love to have S1/c Snider's blues or whites!

Thank you all for the kind words.

 

67Rally,

 

Musial's uniform is definitely one of my favorites as well. There are so many great baseball player's uniforms out there--it would be great to get something from Williams, Robinson or DiMaggio as well!
