M1910 Cup: "J. Arko Okinawa; April First 1945". He has a bunch of other stuff ("Camp Perry, Ohio", "Hawaii", etc.) on there as well, but this photo was an experiment to see how this piece would photograph-Sorry!

Support our troops...abandoning the War on Terror is not an affordable luxury.

I'm so old, I still call W.W.II U.S. militaria "war surplus".

These things are so cool that if it weren't that I collect helmets and ID'd uniforms, I'd probably collect these. The fact that I don't will make my son(trench art collector) very happy since we don't have to compete. :lol:

This is a World War I “diary” mess kit.

 

The lid includes the soldiers name and all of his stateside and overseas assignments during the War. The bottom of the mess kit is engraved with Lady Liberty with his unit designation on a banner.

 

This is identified to Romeo Tognazzini of Battery. F 47th Coastal Artillery Corps.

 

Grouping includes his dog tags. What really makes this special is that the soldier stamped all of the pieces with his Army Service number.
