  1. I just found a first edition copy of "Up Front" yesterday at an antique store for $5.00. It does not have the dust cover but is in great shape otherwise....Kat
  2. Thanks everyone for answering my question. I hope people don't mind me asking questions like this but I really am interested in the history of items. Steve, what you said about it taking away from the Marine Corps as a whole did cross my mind. I thought that might be a reason but was not sure. I figured I would ask the experts. Thanks again....Kat
  3. Thanks so much for your help. I wanted to make sure that I was not looking at the pictures wrong. I have seen Marine patches for the different divisions. Did they ever wear them on a uniform at any time? Thanks again...Kat
  4. I hope it is alright with everyone if I ask another stupid question. Since I have started collecting patches, I am really getting interested in the units and history of the patches. I was looking thru my Pacific Warriors book today. I noticed that the Marines in the pictures don't have any patches on their uniforms. I could find very few pictures where they wore patches in battle. Do Marines not wear patches on their battle fatigues or am I not looking correctly? Thank you for any help....Kat
  5. Wow! You still have quite a bit to unpack. Will you please post pictures when you are finished. I can't wait to see what everything looks like. My Grandfather flew C-46 planes in the CBI. Do you have anything from the CBI? Thanks...Kat
  6. I agree with everyone else. I wish I had the money. I sure hope that whoever wins this bid does a good job preserving everything and keeping it together. This is really a great find. Too bad this wasn't donated to a museum.....Kat
  7. I cannot believe how much stuff you have. I have never seen so much variety in one collection. You just keep showing more and more. How much is left to unpack? ...Kat
  8. This is amazing! I am just starting out collecting. Is this the type of thing I will be looking for in a few years? I better start saving my money now! And buy a bigger house too! Good luck and let us know if you get it! I sure hope you get it rather than it going for scrap metal ...Kat
  9. Jim, This is wonderful! Thank you so much for the information. I am definitely going to write the Air Force Historical Research Agency. I really appreciate this so much...Kat
  10. Jim, I just saw this post and I hope it is alright that I am adding my question to it. My Grandfather was with the 1330th Army Air Corp during WWII. One of his medals that I have is a unit citation. I have been trying to find out how they got the citation. I believe he was based in Assam. I have been trying to find out some information about the 1330th. Do you know of any good places for me to research? Thanks for any help....Kat
  11. Looks great! I have the first 4 issues and can't wait for the next. Do you have any idea when the 5th will be released? Thanks...Kat
  12. David, Thanks a bunch for the explanation....Kat
  13. I am new to collecting. I was wondering what OPFOR stands for. Can you please let me know? I am curious and trying to learn. Thanks....Kat
  14. Ken, You crack me up! A ball turret in the living room! The stuff you find is amazing. I like the idea of the mannequin hanging under it. I think it would look great. Thanks for sharing....Kat
  15. Ken, No worries!!! I totally understand! Where was the picture taken that you just posted in the same message? That is an interesting building. Is it a bunker? One of my wishes is to travel over there and see everything you get to see. Maybe one day......Kat
  16. What is the butter dish made out of? It looks like plastic. I did not think plastic was around during WWII. Awfully glad I found where you moved. I check this post every time I log on!...Kat
  17. All of your models are amazing. The weathering is wonderful! Thanks for sharing...Kat
  18. I love the medical section. I am soooo jealous...Thanks for the updates....Kat
  19. Doc, Welcome to the forum! I love to read books written by doctors, nurses, and corpsmen. Thanks for the information. I will definitely get this book. And thanks for all that you did when you served. Your service is greatly appreciated!....Kat
  20. I have searched the forum and do not see this topic. If it has already been discussed please forgive me. Is there a good dealer for reproduction USAAF crusher caps? I have been trying to find a good one. I would rather buy from a reputable dealer than e-bay. Is there a good dealer for authentic WWII crusher caps instead of getting a repro? What do any of you think? I saw a good one on the History Preservation website but they are sold out. Thanks for any assistance....Kat
  21. Ken, I know I have thanked you before for this post but I wanted to say it again. The pictures like the "then and now" pictures of Falaise really hits home. The pictures got to me and I was not there in person. I could not imagine sitting in that area knowing what went on around you. I also wanted to ask you what this latest item is that you posted. Are those brass knuckles made out of steel? I am a HUGE Clemson fan so it looks like a Tiger Paw to me Thanks again, Kat
  22. Excellent figure! I love the paint job as much as the sculpting. Thanks for sharing...Kat
  23. This is truly amazing. I would love to be able to walk thru your museum you have in your own backyard. You said you have been collecting for 35 years? To have this much stuff, you must buy 100's of items per week. I went to a museum here recently and you have tons more items! Thanks for all of the updates. I too check this regularly to see what you have done....Kat
  24. "And If I Perish: Frontline US Army Nurses in WWII" is an excellent book. It was amazing to read what these nurses did. "Chickenhawk" was the book that started my obsession with reading history books. Thanks...Kat
  25. Thanks for the heads up. Yesterday, I got issues 1 and 3. They are ordering issue 2 for me. He also said that issue 4 is hitting the stores this Wednesday. Just in case any of you are looking for the 4th installment. Thanks again for the heads up...Kat
