    I collect WWII and like anything dated 1943! Particular interest are 99th ID and 1st ID ~ 26th Infantry Regiment. My grandfather trained with the 99th before heading to England in 1943. He was then transferred to the 1st ID 26th IR (Blue Spaders). He was KIA 7/5/44 and is buried in the American Cemetary in Normandy.

  2. Glad to hear all is good with you General. I thought of you when I heard of the cowardly attack in France. Love that Jeep!! Sent from my minnie using Tapatalk
  3. He sure does Kat ~ I also luv the then and now pics. I sit here looking back and forth between them!
  4. I just came across these before and after pictures ~ very interesting. First thing that came to mind is good ole General Apathy. Just thought I'd share them. Ken can confirm but I think he may have done his own before and after pics of some of these shots. The one that comes to mind is the fountain in picture 21. Anyhow enjoy~ http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/2014/06/scenes-from-d-day-then-and-now/100752/
  5. Ken, luv the pics! You should put them in a book - :-)
  6. General it is great to have you back!! I just love the before and after pics as well as picks of items you dig up in your every day jobs. I look at em once and then go back and look at em again~ Keep up the good work~ I really like the gun barrel in the tree, any idea how it got there? Is there a receiver maybe imbedded in the tree? Where I live we find horseshoes and nails in our trees but GUNS??
  7. Great to hear Ian ~ I miss Ken's posts!!
  8. Ken ~ again you are the master of the before and after shots!! Love em~
  9. Went to an auction this past Friday night. I usually just take a little cash just in case they have something interesting. Well I walked in a immediately saw a table of guns (eg dbl barrel shotguns, etc.). Got a number and walked over and immediatly saw an M1 Garand. Looked it over ~ it was nice but nothing great. As I was putting it down I saw it ~ I picked it up and noticed the early flip sights then the early push safety, then the early mag release. Took out my flashlight and the barrel has awsome rifling some of the best I've seen. Lady working said the guns would be auctioned off i
