I am quite interested to know what military items USMF members use as part of their every day use.
As an example, I am an avid hiker. I used my M1 Garand cartridge belt to store snacks in the pouches. It keeps everything convenient, so I don't have to stop and eat.
I also used my Australian WW1 canteen on a number of occasions on my hikes.
I wore my WW2 Australian Owen SMG bayonet on a few trips as my knife.
As I work as a nurse in Intensive Care, I always carry my US Vietnam issue 1968 pocket knife. It's great for piercing IV bags before throwing them out and for cutting IV lines.
Do you have a military issue knife in your toolbox?
Or maybe a military issue wheel brace in your car for your spare tyre?
I'd love one day to buy a genuine WW2 Willy's Jeep to drive to work.....man, THAT would turn some heads!
