  1. Thanks! I’m glad to be the current caretaker of it!
  2. Hello all! This is an Ike jacket belonging to SSgt Carl C. Sterling of Seaside Park, NJ. Sterling enlisted on June 18, 1943 in Camden, New Jersey. He served as a gunner on an A-20 Havoc in the 410th Bomb Group of the 9th Air Force. During his service with the 410th BG he was involved in missions over Germany. Being an aerial gunner over Europe was not the ideal job. However, gunners in heavy bombers had it better off than Havoc gunners. A-20 gunners, like Sterling, had to endure the harsh elements in a cramped compartment, with frigid air rushing through the vents in the aircraft.

  5. Hello all! Today I’m showing my grouping that belonged to Maj. Glenn M. Lashbrook of Santa Ana, California. While living in Galesburg, Illinois, Lashbrook joined up to serve his country on March 27, 1942, at Camp Grant. Lashbrook graduated Class of 43-9 from the navigators school on Mather Field AFB in California. After searching around for a spot in a crew, he was assigned to the 466th Bomb Group. There he became the navigator for LT George Ford’s crew, who were nearing the end of their second phase of training. In Lasbrook’s online diary, he mentions the “uneventful” journey to the UK. Ev

  8. Hello, Im fairly new to researching named uniform that I have, and Im needed some tips and help with finding out if a uniform I obtained actually belongs to a 5th ID combat medic. Ive traced the uniform, through the laundry number, to a Milton D. Auster (ASN 36161320). Can anyone help me confirm whether, or not, he was a combat medic for the 5th ID? Thanks, James
  9. Hey y’all, this is my first post on this forum. I’m still fairly new to this hobby, and I’m still learning. This grouping belong to Cpl. Dominic AJ Santarone, born in Philadelphia, PA. He would enlist in the Marines on Aug 18, 1943. He would go on to serve as a PX clerk and an automatic rifleman for Co. A of the 7th Marines, 1st MarDiv. He would be amongst the first wave that landed on Okinawa. He would eventually be honorably discharged in May of ‘46. He then would re-enlist in 1953 and join MAG-33 and MABS-33. He would be discharged once again in 1954. After his service he would move out
  10. Hello everyone, my name is James. I found this website through a friend of mine. Im still fairly new to collecting militaria. Have been collecting for over a year now. Currently my collections consist of a handful of helmets, uniforms (mostly USAAF), and many vintage military photos/postcards. I have a great interest in USAAF items, especially named uniforms! Im glad to be apart of this forum now so I can learn some more about militaria collecting and military history. Thanks! James
