  1. Your pic with First Aid items and safety pins. Above the safety pins I see a bottle of insect repellent (1st bottle orangey colored). That is some powerful stuff and works great. Use to rub it into my boots and keep crawlers away and skeeters and flies. Smells, but works. Great display and some memories on much what you have. Thanks for sharing.
  2. Lost my Basic Training graduation book, Ft Knox Co. D-12-3. anyone take Basic Training there when Captain Garcia was Company Commander? He only was 2 years Company Commander. Graduation Oct 1965.
  3. I also looked and didn't see it.
  4. Were can I find the Modified straps for goggles to attach to side snaps on helmets? Looking for original, otherwise I can make. Thanks
  5. AH! yes. Thank you. Checking my pack I see the instruction. I don't see how I missed it, Thanks
  6. Thanks. I was wondering since there are no straps on the M1945 pack for the meat cans and utensils pouch, how were the items carried when the 44 and M1945 Combat packs came out? Since a trooper didn't;t want to dig through his pack for these when they came across hot meals, how were they carried so he had quick access.
  7. The M-1928 Haversack had attachment for mounting the meatcan pouch. How were utensils, etc. mounted or packed for silence in a 44 or M-1945 pack? Thanks
  8. Nice . Dang, run into you on so many forums. Capt Lee Bishop, always enjoy your post. LOL
  9. I'm in the same boat, with numerous items I acquired from veterans bring back and at estate sales since 1969. I have sold numerous items at Gunbrokers, but there's a lot of repros there also, so be prepared for showing good pics, and description of your items. The Werhmacht forum is a good site, I have mostly Luftwaffe items left now, and use Gunbroker, and will also wait till next time the forum is open again here. I avoid selling outright to dealers, they offer only .25 to .30 cents on a dollar, but many will, and are pretty fair in trading toward US item they have in stock, and have done it several times.
  10. Ordered and payed for a couple items. Very nice, and easy to navigate.
  11. Seems your making a judgement here, and using the power of Moderator to emphasis same. Its not as you state and wrote, "They would not ship as you like---", but I do see you making a judgement on me, and see it in the reply. Getting back to main issue of person getting no replies to E-Mail etc. and slow shipping especially when paying extra for "priority" which carries a premium. If a seller ir attending a convention, etx. they should let it be known. Rather I see the "Forum" making post for the seller, and in my thinking, "excuses" for them on why items not sent, or replies not given. And yes, when doing this, especially for sponsors, rather then the waiting for seller to reply, it complicit. 18.00+ plus shipping I felt was high, very high for 1 item, especially when I get a reply as to that is what it "cost" to ship, and they were shipping it "priority". I bought items before from them, as has my son, each time I thought their shipping was high. But let it slide. So I'm to understand that we are ( or I am) not allowed to question shipping charges? And should not ask/suggest alternatives to soften or reduce high shipping charges? One of the replies was that he had to pay for boxes, when if he ships priority, boxes are free. His reply to me after making suggestion only, was, " doesn't want my business". As to "Stellar" reputation? Based on? Thanks for allowing me to reply. Oh, and I bought not 1 bottle, buy 2 from another Forum sponsor, and paid less then half in priority shipping.
  12. Sorry to say, I'm not happy with them also. Seems if they're a sponsor, any problems and they get to glide. While back I questioned they're high postage charges to send Vietnam Mosquito plastic bottle which were 1/2 the price, but more then double in postage. I suggested they use the Post Office supplied small/medium priority boxes and postage would be half, plus item would be insured for up to 50.00 with no extra charges. I was told that they have a charge for packaging, etc., etc. I thought I was helping them with a lower outlet in shipping. Well my endeavor let to being no longer allowed to purchase items from them. Only because I questioned their excess, high shipping charges. Best thing is, I found other more respectfull sellers, and better shipping charges, they also answer all questions or concerns. Wonder what their attitude would have been on a questionable item???
  13. +1 on your evaluation of these type shows. Been involved with several History Channel shows and what you wrote is 110% correct. Staged and pre-scripted. Also "Storage War" is bad, some of the lockers are not the ones bid on, but rather staged for the show. Pawn Stars is pre-scripted, and even rehearsed for final editting. A shame that so many think these are "reality shows" and pushed as same by the stations. I no longer watch these shows.
  14. I've had 2 bad buying experiences there. Twice items were supposed to be shipped, never arrived. Had to wait weeks to figure out what happened. Possible twice sent to wrong person. Sorry, getting burned twice was enough.
