  1. I found this lighter for sale at a vendor stall by the Seine in Paris, France. It seemingly has the name of several locations in Vietnam during the 60s as well as the name Slugger. If anyone is familiar with any of the names engraved on it and could help ID I would appreciate it!
  2. And I'm so sorry to hear of your grandfather's passing. My own grandfather was a veteran and died last year, so I feel your pain. I just texted you, and hope to ship these items to you as soon as possible. Rest in peace Sergeant Swift
  3. Hey, I haven't been on this site in forever and I'm sooo sorry about this, I had literally NO idea this happened. Please message me
  4. Hello, So I finally found a picture of my hero/grandfather in his millitary uniform. He died a year ago after a long happy life. He was unspoken about his experiences in WWII, having suffered PTSD after living through Omaha Beach, the Hedgerows, St. Lo, the Battle of the Bulge etc. unlike most of his friends sadly. He did not mention specifics about his training or units so I was intrigued when I saw the patch on his arm. However, I cannot find what it belongs to for the life of me so help would be MUCH appreciated. We know he was trained at some point in time as a tank destroying specialist,
  5. Hi everyone, I have a relative (Not the one who's uniform I show on one of my topics) who served in almost all of the major battles of France (Omaha Beach, Hedgerows, St. Lo, Battle of the Bulge). I have talked to him about his expierience but because he was switched to different divisions so frequently, he can't remember them (Except for training with the 66th ID in England and then during B.O.T.B. being w/ Patton's Third). I would be curious to see what division he was in during these historic events. Does anyone know of a website that gives detailed info. like this? I have looked on the Na

  7. Ha you're right Saw the holes but put aside the fact that they were only on one side of the belt (+The store put a tag on it labeled "Web Belt" )
  8. Found these at a local antique store. It's a good haul for randomly walking into a store that looks like it only sells used lamps . There's a tool bag and light that I think are from nam and a web belt that is most likely from WWII but isn't stamped. Any thoughts about what era they're from? Thanks - WWIIEnthusiast
  9. I recently won this hat on ebay. It's a WWII sailor's hat that he and all his crewmates signed. In the description it states that inside the rim is written "U. W.-436". Does anyone have an idea of what this means? Thanks, WWIIEnthusiast
