If there is one thing I really like finding it's painted and ID'ed Marine Sea Bags. The first of these three is by far my favorite. The last came from a local flea market for a dollar.

What a great collection of "trench art."

Is that WE DEETZ this guy?

Wendell Deetz, 91, of Clermont, passed away on Tuesday, January 6, 2004 at Burdette Tomlin Memorial Hospital. Born in Philadelphia to the late Ralph and Dorothea (Glaser) Deetz, Sr., he lived here over 20 years after moving from Philadelphia. He was a printer for the Philadelphia Bulletin Newspaper. He was a World War II Veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and was an Iwojima survivor.

Mr. Deetz is survived by two step-daughters; three nieces; two nephews; and one cousin.

Like I mentioned in a previous post, the bulldog head pictured in post #2 was designed by a Disney artist and appears on the cover of the July 1943 issue of Leatherneck magazine.

My name is Richard Ernest Deetz (D.O.B. 1-13-1945). W.E. Deetz (actually Wendell Ernest Deetz) was my uncle. He was survived by three nephews (David R. Deetz, Richard E. Deetz, and Jack Oswald), and by two nieces (Barbara Deetz Bankert and Joan Oswald Painter).
