  1. I have come across a Kelly Pad from WW2 and I was wondering if anyone knows anything about these? I have been unable to locate any information on this online. I can post pics if needed. I believe these were used as follows: Kelly's pad, a horseshoe-shaped inflatable rubber drainage pad used in a bed or on the operating table. Mosby's Medical Dictionary, 8th edition. © 2009, Elsevier. Does anyone know when these were first used by the US military? Is this a rare find? Any information is appreciated. Thanks in advance
  2. do you guys have any other suggestions on determining the rarity of this item? do you think a military medical museum could provide me with some additional information? i was thinking about selling it, but since i have never seen another one like it it is difficult to even know where to begin as far as an asking price.
  3. Thanks for the reply. have you seen any of these before from this time frame? just wondering if it is a rare or common item. it is the first one i have come across. thanks in advance
  4. Not sure what this would be called or what category to place it in. I can not post in the medical reference section. Any help in identifying this would be greatly appreciated. It is made out of pretty heavy aluminum and reminds me of a modern day laptop stand you would use in your bed. Thanks http://s1001.photobucket.com/albums/af131/...28Hz/Militaria/
  5. I found this on Wikipedia: "In 1970, his younger brother Weiland was killed in Vietnam. Norris later dedicated his Missing in Action films to his brother's memory."
  6. Thanks for the suggestion. I will pick that one up and begin to educate myself on the subject.
  7. I am looking for a few good books do identify all of the various tiger stripe Vietnam uniform pattern as well as any books on how to differentiate between reproduction vs. authentic Vietnam era pieces. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  8. looks like a very informative book... i plan to pick one up as well. thanks
  9. I agree that his movies are pretty bad...which is I am sure the general overall consensus. I was not sure if his movies had any realism from a military or war perspective. Thanks for the feedback!
  10. I realize that these were not the greatest films by any means, but curious if there are any fans on this forum of say "Delta Force" or "Missing in Action"? Also curious if any of his films were accurate at all or just Hollywood make believe...
  11. This was one of the best war movies, IMHO, the ratings on IMDB dont lie... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078788/ Currently ranked #35 out of the top 250 movies ever made. Not too shabby.
  12. This show was excellent. The history channel is hard to beat especially when compared to many of the other channels out there.
  13. I agree...this was a great film and an accurate portrayal.
