Hello Gents,

 

Glad to join the forum after some fine guys (Thank Brig/Smitty) recommended that I sign up after I started dipping my toe into US awards this year. I think it was because I kept on bugging them with questions and more questions. :dry:

 

A little bit about me....

 

Yes, Sorry to say....I'm an unabashed collector of German Third Reich items and love it.  :)  Been collecting since I was a kid  and have build up a small collection of awards, helmets, equipment, uniforms, rifles, edged weapons, etc. etc. etc.

 

But I love history so I do not limit myself strictly to Third Reich items. I also have interests in collecting items for other countries from WW2 and WW1 (primarily US and Japan as well as some Italian items)

 

Basically, I just like it all.

 

Anyway Thanks for having me. Looking forward to building up my knowledge of US Militaria.

 

Thanks and Regards,

 

Michael

Thanks John. Yeah the bug!!...but it was self inflicted. My 2019 resolution was to get all the WW2 US awards (one boxed and one loose for display). Still have a long ways to go......
