  10. The guy enlisted 58-60 then 64-69 You could be correct!
  11. This helmet is from a man who served with the 8th recon in Germany. What could the blue and white stripes mean on his helmet? They have been there for awhile. I have talked to a mp collector and he said that its not mp. Im confused at this point
  12. I have this m1 helmet. Named to a Matthew e kinlaw who served 58-60 then again 65-64. Matthew passed in 97 and his helmet was sold to another collector, and eventually made its way to me. Anyone know what the 8th recon was? Also what do you think the stripes mean?
