  1. Croc, Thanks for your quick response. I will probably limit my collection to WWII - present so yes I would like to see the devices used in the late 1960s. Mike
  2. Are each of these Warrant Officer specialties found on WO shoulder boards? Are there any USN WO specialties (past or present) missing from this chart? Thanks Mike
  3. Memphis-Belle What a fantastic collection. My daughter is an Army Nurse - Captain. I am certain she will enjoy seeing your posts. Thanks for sharing. Mike
  4. I wish I had talked more with my family members who served during WWII. Although some, including my uncle who was a Silver Star winner, did not want to talk about their experiences.
  5. MM and Steve - Awesome collections. I really enjoy seeing these types of posts. Will you share some stories about your favorite acquisitions? Thanks
  6. If you scroll down the left column and read the article about Jimmy Doolittle you will read about one of Marie McMillin's parachuting records. She jumped from over 20,000 feet in 1932. I have done close to 16,000 using the modern chutes. What an incredible feat that was in her day. http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1893&dat=19320903&id=J9QoAAAAIBAJ&sjid=zNEEAAAAIBAJ&pg=6820,227573
  7. Marie McMillian pictured above in Gil Burket's post held literally hundreds of aviation and parachuting records before and after WWII. The only job the army would give her was to rig or pack parachutes
  8. Mitter2K1 Nice find. Applied chevrons and great looking bullion stitching. Can you post pictures of the backs? Thanks
  9. Robert, I am new to the forum. My USN/USCG collection consists of about 30 boards. Mostly singles rather than pairs. Do you have any singles for sale or trade? Thanks
  10. I am looking for USN and USCG hard shoulder board singles. All ranks. Buy or trade. Thanks
  11. I am looking for the following USN/USCG PO1s or CPOs in any color. My budget won't allow for some of them but I can dream big. Thanks.
