  Gents,  I picked up a box of canteens with a few mess kits at auction.   Nobody wanted them so I grabbed them at the end without looking at them.   At home I took a look and one had some obscure USMC art on the canteen.  Anybody know what the Jarhead was trying to commemorate?

 

Semper Fi,

  Bob

There is a KULI in the Solomon islands, so the canteen owner was probably there…
