  1. That's cool that you were there 75 years to the minute they were killed. Good video! Keep it up!
  2. Did you happen to look for and find the mass grave for the crew and paratroopers of plane 66? That's the C47 that carried the E co, 506th company command group. They were shot down the night of June 6th 1944 over Normandy. This was 1LT Meehan's stick. They are interred at Jefferson Barracks as well.
  3. They're pretty sure it's JOHNSTON based on the position and lack of splinter camouflage patterns on the pieces they've found. They also found ST. LO. I was hoping they'd find SAMUEL B. ROBERTS, HOEL and GAMBIER BAY as well. They said they want to go back and confirm whether or not this is JOHNSTON or not.
  4. Oh, thanks! I didn't even realize that part of the board was there.
  5. Petrel found WASP as well as HORNET. https://www.facebook.com/rvpetrel/
  6. R/V Petrel also found WASP. I think they found her before HORNET but just announced it yesterday. https://www.facebook.com/rvpetrel/
  7. There is an Ordnance Museum at Jefferson Barracks in St. Louis and one of the guys who runs it is retired Navy O-6 I believe. They have LOTS of naval ordnance on display and they know a lot about it. You might try contacting them to see if they might be able to provide more information on your shell. I know they have some 12" shells on display but I don't remember what kind or for which gun.
  8. I know this is an old thread, but Camp Gruber, OK has a MOUT training area. Fort McCoy, WI has one too.
  9. It looks like it is a saw blade, specifically, a metal saw. Looks like it's got teeth on both edges of the blade.
  10. Second picture down. The first four look like M2 Ball, the next two look like 173gr M1 Ball, the next one looks like .30 caliber Tracer and the last one looks like 173gr M1 Ball.
  11. Great knife! I love the 225Q's and have three of them myself. Mine don't have family history but they are great knives. Hope you can find your grandpa's stuff!
  12. Nice. Between the RH36, 225Q and M3, I don't know which are my favorite. Probably the RH36 for the versatility.
