  1. I knew Bob from some of the Texas shows and hanging out at the Fort Worth Military Museum. Bob was a fixture there, he always had lots of stories to share. One of my last trips to the museum before heading back to Carolina. Simper Fi Rest in Peace Bob!
  2. Hello Forum friends, Most of us here know what today was and remember from the veterans and history lessons we learned in school. I got up this morning looking at the full moon trying to imagine the unimaginable morning 76 years ago. My heart felt prayers to all the young men who gave all and the ones who returned with the memories and scars that lasted a life time. God Bless them and I pray future generations remember. With all the strife going on today I wonder if it will get mention on the daily news. God Bless the Our brave Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and personal who served then and today. Take a minute and say a prayer. God Bless Us and this Country we live in. Enjoy your Freedom and your day. Remember Freedom isn't Free. 268th C.A.

  6. I have known Robert for many years, going back along way...I would run into him at shows many moons ago. He is a stand out guy. Nothing but good to say. Wealth of knowledge, absolutely agree with his gift for conversation, whether he is talking to a 13 year old or a 85 year old. He has the gift of conversation for sure. Thanks Robert! you have answered many questions for all no matter how trivial. An asset to the forum and the collecting community. Regards!
  7. Enlisted, yes correct, Blue is Infantry
  8. I agree its too heavy to be a shako plate, its a brest plate IMO. typical construction, the cannon would also lean me towards Artillery. Still a beautiful plate.
  9. They are a tough breed, from a different generation. There is something about this generation they were tough as nails. God Rest His soul .RIP sailor and fair winds. Its alway tough to see another of the "Greatest Generation" pass. your in Gods hands.
  10. Probably the only named medal in the grouping. Some one will replace the medals with WW2 issue medals no doubt.

  16. I store most of my patch collection in them some medal groupings, unless your travling with them bouncing down the road, I have never had a problem with anything, being hurt or damaged. I personally like them as they keep things clean and origanized. example..
