Thank you for allowing me to join your group.
My name is Rick and collect different military items. Helmets, bayonets, field gear, uniforms, and some personal effects. Anywhere from eastern block (mainly East German), WW2 (mainly U.S. but some German too) to current U.S. military equipment, uniforms and in between periods. I'm also a crazy nut about the U.S. Civil War primarily uniforms, equipment, and how they were made. Federal and Confederate. I can't afford to buy them so I research them instead.
I look forward to expanding my knowledge via these forums. From what I've already seen there is hours and hours of research that I can't wait to peruse.
