Hello Everyone,  I am a collector for the past 30 years.  My primary focus now is WW1 Marine Corps.  Glad to be here.

 From a fellow WW1 collector- Welcome to the best U.S. militaria forum anywhere!  Any particular group of WW1 Marines? Any 339th Inf./N. Russia?   Hope to hear from you soon.

No particular group but I do focus on the named groupings,  uniforms and headgear.  I do have a 339th Inf./ N Russia grouping to a Private Harris Avison who was in Company A.  and a grouping to Cornelius DeWitt who was in Company B of the 310th Engineers.

Hello and Thank you.  Sorry for the late reply but have been busy with work.  I have not visited the battlefields of France but going to Normandy and Germany is definitely on my bucket list.
