Driving home today from work


Recommended Posts

Was working today and was bummed i missed the flea market the was a small yard sale .It was late and she was picking up but figured what the heck.I was poking trough a box and found the velcro airborne tab (which i need :) ) She saw me pick it up and said she had sold a bunch of modern uniforms and packs and helmet earlier:(,i was even more bummed now.Then she come out of the house with a box of odds and ends,the guy who bought all the other gear missed this stuff.I was happy again.Seems it was all her ex-husbands stuff .

The knife brings me back a few years. These were sold in the little post exchange facilities in Iraq. I mailed home two for my boys. Then all of the other boys in the neighborhood saw them, and wanted one too...a few of the dads as well, so I turned in to the Iraq knife connection...

I will pay top dollar for original WWII items pertaining to:

 

OSS

OSS Maritime Unit

NCDU

UDT

Scouts and Raiders

FSSF

It says Office of Mission Integration on the coin (OMI), as for what it is specifically, looks like a CIA type thing but could just as easily be a corporate logo as well. Scott
