  1. Would be fun to use some of these today and see who even realizes what they mean.
  2. It's interesting the attitude the GIs have in many of the goof-off photos towards holding weapons, versus what you see in European photos of a similar theme.
  3. It's also good to do a scheduled cleaning/inspection every 6 months or so. It helps to catch these things early before it spreads to the entire collection.
  4. Distilled white vinegar or plain vodka work great, sprayed on and let it dry.
  5. Febreeze will mostly just cover up the smell, plus leave a residue. For items that originally are meant to be washed in water (cotton P41s for instance) handwashing with a small amount of white vinegar will often work very well. It also deodorizes the item, and leaves no residue. Hang dry on a drying rack or good hanger that won't distort the shoulders. The key is to make sure it dries fairly quickly. If indoors, use a fan, or better yet, hang it where the outdoor breeze or sun is on it for a short time. The UV of the sunlight will also disinfect and deodorize it, in addition to drying.
  6. Freezer is good, though I've heard it can take up to two weeks before it's effective.
  7. The Fedora Lounge has some guys that really know the history of felt hats, for sure.
