  1. Appears to be a Fedayeen Saddam beret. Cool piece!
  2. Pretty sure this is for a BSA medal (such as the Saginaw Indian Trail medal).
  3. Appears to be a Korean made patch for the 15th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron. Looking at the construction and subdued color scheme, I believe this an 80's piece.
  4. Your best bet would be to send a FOIA request to the National Archives in DC. Since you verified that is ASN is in fact #13001006, you should be set. Not sure if his records survived the burn, but it's worth a shinola IMHO.
  5. Any updates on this? It was an interesting piece for sure.
  6. Just for reference, here's an M16 operated by the 447th AAA (AW) during the battle of the bulge.
  7. Tank you for your help, Allan! You are a wealth of knowledge.
  8. Would he have worn the 28th ID SSI? And what collar discs is he wearing in the above picture? Armored Infantry? Thank you in advance for your help.
  9. Here you go. GROM on the left, Chris Kyle on the right circa 2004.
  10. A picture of T5 Posey I found on the WWII Memorial site (http://www.wwiimemorial.com/Registry/Search.aspx)
  11. Hi all, It's been a while since I have posted on this forum, but I have been collecting in the meantime. I recently found this small medal and insignia grouping on Ebay at a very attractive price. Although this is post-WWII (from the GRACO GI hallmark I would think 70's - 80's) government reissue set, it is the story behind them that got me hooked. T5 Robert Posey landed on Omaha Beach on D-Day + 1 (his unit was actually supposed to land on June 6 but got pushed back until the next day), and served with the A battery, 447th AAA AW. This battalion was attached to the 110th IR, 28th ID, which operated M16 half-tracks equipped with quad .50s and fought in Normandy, Huertgen, Rhineland, Ardennes (Bastogne), and Central Europe. At first I was surprised that there was no CIB with the set, but I assume he wasn't eligible for one since his wasn't in an infantry role? Either way, I thought this was a great, affordable grouping and I wanted to share it with you. Fred
  12. The Diablo Det Rawah patch is a Naval Special Warfare patch that was made for SEALs and their coalition counterparts back in 2004. I have a period picture of this patch being worn, if interested.
  13. Thank you for showing your bullion collection everyone! Although I no longer own any, I always enjoy seeing them. They are true works of art and must have required a lot of skill to make.
  14. Thank you all! What's the going rate for these nowadays? $50?
