  1. The important thing is to keep alive the memory of who gave their future so we could enjoy our present. I have a 23 year old son who as Petty Officer is proudly serving onboard the SSBN 734 Tennessee. God Bless America!
  2. PUT A PIECE OF THICK CLOTH CUT-TO-SIZE BETWEEN BOTH SIDES OF RIBBON AND USE ELMERS WHITE GLUE TO KEEP IT FROM RIPPING OFF BY WEIGHT OF METAL PARTS. I HAVE DONE THIS AND WORKS GREAT.
  3. Typo error. The name inside of satchel says T.R. Manning. I hope that anybody can provide any information on him. The MACV patch looks to be old.
  4. Recent Flea market acquisition! You just never know what you are coming across with. Any comments on who T.R. Mannings is or may have been?
  5. The unit exists as a Indiana NG unit. But the Conrad name does not appear related to anything. The colors suggest 1st Gulf War time period if it were to be a genuine scroll.
  6. Hi everybody! These are recent flea market acquisitions in Florida. I was told by seller that they are Vietnam War period but did not have any information on them as he got them in an estate sale. Does anybody on this forum can help out identifying them? Are they original? I scanned them on both sides. Thanks to all, Rick.
  7. As my grandpa used to say: "A thing is worth what fool is willing to pay for".
  8. Looks like a Ambrotype image. Photographs of this kind always resulted with a inverted image because it was a direct one of a kind exposure to a glass plate. The same with Daguerrotypes and Ferrotypes aka Tintypes.
  9. Re-dyed doesn't make sense as lining is still tan or khaki. If dyed after it was manufactured then all parts must in same color.
  10. Maybe it was a gift/presentation from someone that actually served in Cuba. I collect 6th Massachusetts Regiment memorabilia, very interesting. After the Span-Am War ended Bannerman Industries purchased from the US Government large stocks of military paraphernalia captured or left behind by the Spanish and sold them on the collectors market.
  11. I would guess that attributing this tab to CAP would be logical as a Flight Commander is a term used in such organization.
  12. These were most probably made with the same embroidery machinery used in WWII.
  13. The lighter looks original but the patch is most surely one of those modern Vietnamese made patches for collectors.
