  1. It closed in Rockford, IL - not too far from where I live. I never got a chance to visit, but the camp has an interesting history. They appear to have liquidated their entire collection-- some very common items with no apparent period connection to the camp went for far more than I would have ever expected. The helmet's final price on their auction site is $11,542.50. Still picking my jaw up off the floor.
  2. Appears to be from the US Naval Academy. I'm not sure of the vintage, sorry!
  3. Yes, it was worn over the 7th Army while in Germany in the 1950s, and with the 1st Infantry Division after 1966 I believe.
  4. Great find! I love those tabs!
  5. This is a very informative thread. I have only a couple pieces, all of which are poplin. Enjoy!
  6. Fantastic collection! Especially love the bummer cap!
  7. All help in identifying this one would be greatly appreciated! Not in any of the resources I can find at the moment. Thank you!
  8. Such a cool group Jerry! Looking forward to more of the story as you uncover it!
  9. Here is one on a 45th ID jacket. I believe the vet assembled the jacket after the war (he was 45th ID, then wore 7th Army patch, then sewed the 45th back on...the sewing is matching on both patches)
  10. Thank you. There were two green berets, lots of patches, and loads of foreign/German items.
  11. Greetings! I am proud to be the caretaker of part of a veteran's estate. The military items went up for auction, and if I had put together more of my research beforehand, I would have placed more bids! The veteran was a surgeon in the 506th PIR in 1956, later for the 10th SFG in Germany. He served two tours in Vietnam with various units including the 173rd Airborne, was posted to numerous medical commands, and retired a colonel in the 1980s. I was fortunate to acquire his named M1C (shown in greater detail here), 506th officer's Ridgeway cap, a cap with Ranger tab,
  12. That's a fantastic group! I especially like the blue shirt as well!
