  1. Yup, the two inkwell bottles with screw tops were kept together in their own little oval slot at the front of the top right side tall drawer, to the rear of which were two long slots for writing implements.
  2. Holy Moly! A true anthropology treasure chest... Now in safe hands.
  3. Absolutely, US military. I had one for many years... got it at the Frankfort, Kentucky federal surplus warehouse in 1972. Used it for camping.
  4. Question: What sort of cord or chain or (?) would typically have been ISSUED with those discs?
  5. Thank for that info on Saginaw, MI ! I worked there for 3 years, curator at their art museum. The GM plant closed during the time I was there...
  6. Is this Saginaw, MICHIGAN? General Motors did have a plant there up until not too long ago. I think it was an engine plant...
  7. Relative to the total number serving it was a small contribution, but I was very surprised to learn how many and how widespread their service had been. For that matter, no doubt hardly anyone outside of military historians even knows they served at all. Having these muster role equivalents is quite revealing.
  8. My amazing wife, without asking or telling, had the following very important reference book sent to me. "The American Jew as Patriot, Soldier and Citizen" By: Simon Wolf 1895 The Levytype Company, publishers 576 pages I had read of the existence of this book in other ones having to do with Jews serving during the Civil War, but never imagined I'd ever see, or own, a copy. Essentially, the great majority of the book consists of alphabetical listings, muster rolls in effect, of Jews who have served in uniform with and for America, by State, by first and last name, rank, company an

  10. What a time that must have been, for all... Thank you for this important reminder.
  11. This is another one of those times when I wish we had a "Like" button to click on at USMF
  12. I have many times wished I'd been able to keep my USAF a/c mech clamshell tool box full...
  13. Glad she made it through... I took my youngest son on board her years ago, back when she was docked in the China Basin area. What stuck with me most of all was how compact she was... beam + bow > stern + draft etc.
  14. Johnny, I've by now forgotten for how long you have been creating those? Seems like quite awhile, beautiful work.
  15. 1963, Lackland BMT... my flight had some guys outfitted with gray fatigues and a truly mixed bag of colors or shapes even, a few blue USAF blankets and duffels among the army green kind, surplus M1 carbines for the range. Our caps, brogans and jackets were all the same though.
  16. Thank you... I had used it for years just fine, and then it went kaflooey on me too a few months back.
  17. And then... there's always the C-47 and B-52
