I hit my favorite flea market for the last time this summer and saw a sad sight. There was a large container with a marine grouping and the seller was selling everything out of the grouping piecemeal. I missed some great things but did get some paper pieces, a photo, a nice variant patch, a meatball flag and the painted sea bag which was my favorite piece. Our Marine was named Phillip Ham and you will probably see other things from him surfacing on Ebay from other sellers the next few weeks.

Salem is just a short drive away from me. Sad to see it split up, but I'm glad you saved what you could.

Hi Jguy. I'm not sure yet how Miss Mahoney from Salem was related to the Marine.

Some of the best military folk art has to be on Marine sea bags.

It's a true folk art genre - nose art for grunts.
