"Greeting"...as my father's draft notice said (although I'm quite sure that I'm happier to write that here than he was to read it on his birthday in 1943!)  I am very happy to have joined this forum.  I have found myself referred here countless times whenever I've been searching for answers on the internet, and have been happily sucked down endless rabbit holes as I read though post after post of interesting information written by a lot of very knowledgeable people.

 

I have been a history nerd my entire life, but have always had a specific interest in WWII. Growing up I read everything I could get my hands on and tried to understand the "big picture", but was really more fascinated in the personal stories...hence my interest in the militaria of the period: they are the artifacts of someone's personal story.  Also, my father served in Europe, and he was my hero. 

 

 

I look forward to learning more, and maybe even contributing my own tidbit or two whenever I can.
