  1. I am looking for the medals (or other items) awarded to General Henry Ware Lawton.
  2. With the mix of jump qualified and non-qualified troops, maybe it was taken at Camp Mackall?
  3. Rick, Is the photographer or the studio identified?
  4. Welcome! Great photo of your dad and Major Dan Kirby!
  5. I have a large Spanish American War era cabinet photo, approximately 14"x 12" which became brittle and a large section broke off tearing through the photo. I taped the back with archival tape, but it is not enough to stabilize it. What does the group think about gluing it to an archival quality mounting board? There are no marks on the back, so no information would be lost.
  6. Very interesting to see an award document for a National Guardsman. This may be his headstone. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/973044/thomas-w-mccullough Unfortunately, it is a somewhat common name, so it may be hard to track down, unless request his records through NPRC.
  7. Since you’re talking shelter halves, I once bought two WWI shelter halves off a guy who was using them as a tarp for his trailer. Total cost was $1.00.
  8. Congratulations! A very nice find!
  9. Very nice images! Do you have an image of the 20th Kansas band? I am looking for an image of Principle Musician Edgar Tucker. He was originally from Indiana but was in Kansas at the time of the war and joined the 20th. Here is an image of his discharge signed by Funston. Please excuse the quality of the scan, I did this several years ago and need t rescan with a better scanner.
  10. Sweet! I just started messing around with my detector again. I’ll have to look into a pin pointer also.

    Walther P-38

    This is a great thread! Did you get to meet your Uncle? He seems like he has quite a sense of humor.
  12. Here is a example from a Michigan regiment that was posted on FB.
  13. Welcome! There are several knowledgeable Vietnam & GWOT camo collectors on the forum, feel free to pick their collective brains.
  14. Sorry, when I looked again I saw my enlisted insignia didn’t have “Indiana” on them. Only the officer’s collar insignia is marked with the state abbreviation.
