  1. We've all been there for sure. When I was in 3rd grade (about 1982) I bought a mint WW2 helmet and liner from a local military surplus store. I remember it was dark green and had a small lieutenant's bar painted in silver on the front. Khaki chin strap. At that time where I lived those helmets were a dime a dozen. I had no idea at the time that it was genuine WW2. When I grew up and left home I didn't take it with me because I no longer wanted it. Thankfully my parents didn't throw it out.
