I thought we could resurrect this thread with some new card postings as we head into the Christmas season. I'll post some of my Christmas card acquisitions over the next couple weeks. Kim

Please excuse my repetition of this old post as a new thread. My search for "Christmas" was too cursory. Christmas Cards back to the top. Here's a couple from the 17th Airborne. The one on the right is Christmas 43/44 at Camp Mackall and one on the left is Christmas 44/45 made in England while stationed at Camp Chisledon.

Tredhed2 is that during the occupation 45/46? I love the colors and rendition of the Constabulary paint scheme on the M8 and the helmets.

Sorry for the quality of the images; from my Mavica / pre-scanner days . . .

Sgt. Merle J. "Jim" Kurtzhal of 3/3, First Special Service Force. After disbandment, he went to the 474th and to Norway.

A very simple V-Mail card, though it was able to include his picture in the lower right.

Best regards,
Paul

This is at Ft. Lewis. Could this be the predecessor of the 75th Rangers, which is still at Ft. Lewis?
