Greetings to all from NW Washington

I have been interested in military history & have collected since the late 1960s. I did not serve in the armed forces myself, but starting with family stories & items handed down to me early on, the bug was in place. In short, I find myself here, & wish to participate & hope to contribute in some way...

Welcome Jon. I live in the Tacoma area, so we are somewhat neighbors. Lots of information and lots of helpful people on the site, so enjoy.
Do you go to any of the local military shows? There is one at the Olympic Flight Museum in Tumwater twice a year. The next one is in March, but I don't have the date. You can contact them via the net or FB and they will let you know when it is.

I'll take a stab at it anyways...
Some years back, I involved myself in Civil War reenacting with the WCWA. Later, some living
history with the Friends of Willie & Joe. Active
up to about 2006...
Since that time, I joined ASMIC for a few years, but had to give up a few of the luxuries etc...
At some point, I'll have to make my way down
to the Olympic Flight Museum for one of the
militaria shows. I've heard only good things
Responding to you guys that have a connection
to the 41st Infantry Division. My dad started out
with Co.M 163rd Inf.Regt. in 1940, went over to
Australia on the Queen Elizabeth, went through
Sananada, Aitape, Wakde & Biak. Somewhere in
there, he was with HQ 3/163 as a runner. He came home on points before the division went
to the Philippines...
In closing, I'll try to find the right category to post
some of his photos from Camp Murray & Fort Lewis, a few from Australia also. I think he had
to send his camera home at that point, so none
from Papua/New Guinea...
Thanks to all, Jon....

I'm utilizing an old 4s iPhone, & have been reading topics on posting photos with mobile devices. I'm not set up with any apps currently,
but will try a few experiments in the coming days...
