  1. Thanks, guys! Appreciate all the comments and thoughts!! Ed
  2. I recently purchased a fixed bail, front seam M-1 painted light blue. On the front of the helmet letters are stenciled: H-P-D Is anyone on the forum familiar with this particular designation? Thanks in advance...Ed
  3. @warguy...I'm not the most tech-savvy guy. It's your standard tunic...in fine shape/ribbon bar...the diamond patch and the two SSIs for the 3rd Marine Division and the Navy corpsman patch beneath it. I found the name DIEHL, in ink, on the inside of one sleeve...no laundry markings. I might be able to get one of my buddy to get a photo of it and send it to your e-mail address. You can respond with a private message if that would be something you'd like me to do. Thanks for the interest, and if you have any more information on this Marine, please let me know. Again, thanks for your interes
  4. JB4244...thanks for the information! On the ribbon bar is a Purple Heart and Pacific Theater ribbon with one battle star. There is also a "Ruptured Duck" on the chest. When you mention "early discharge" might this be due to having been seriously wounded? I ask this question in light of the fact that the regular discharge eagle patch is also present. Thanks! Ed
  5. I recently acquired a WW II 3rd Division tunic. Below the 3rd Division patch is a Navy corpsman patch. On the right upper sleeve is a totally white sewn-on blank patch. I was wondering about the significance of this particular patch. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...Ed
  6. Being a retired teacher I found this story wonderful and terribly sad. Losing "one of your kids" is a sad thing for any teacher, but to lose so MANY, in so short a time span...well, the only thing you can't see are her tears and I am sure there were many. What a wonderful inspiration she must have been to both her students and her community!
  7. A#1 in my book...great to do business with....wonderful people! Ed
  8. Currently reading "Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors" GREAT read! Ed
  9. It's NOT Killing Lincoln or Killing Kennedy...if you are curious about events leading up to Patton's death, get it from the library...but as far as the pre-publication hype goes, it is sadly lacking. But that's Jus' Ed.
  10. As riveting and intense as watching spaghetti boil... A closely woven intrigue and plot resembling a fishing net... As rapidly paced as Olympian snail races... O'Really, O'Reilly? O'Reilly and his partner continue to ride to the top of the best sellers' list on the quality of their first two books. The entire book consists of background information and the thoughts of any conspiracy are left until the final chapters of the book. The suspense builds at the speeding pace of hardening arteries. This book might have made an interesting brochure, but hardly achieves any stature of bein
  11. Don't think anyone will ever forget where they were and what they were doing when they first got the news that The King had died.
  12. Thanks for taking the time to post all these incredible pictures....and to all those reenactors and vehicle enthusiasts who work to keep the past alive!
  13. Where could you store all that equipment? It must have been a never-ending task to keep everything maintained, serviced and repaired!
  14. Thanks for posting all of these pictures...looking forward to see the movie "Fury" and it was interesting to see the set-up they made to get some of the shots!
