My Office and USMC family history


Recommended Posts

Hi, that's a very nice office B)

 

I don't even imagine having some military item in my office, I'm always impressed when I see yours.

Collecting USMC AEF 1917-18 & PTO 1941-45, US Navy PTO 1941-45.

 

Most seeked items : USMC dog tags from 1915 to 1945, USN corpsman dog tags and other identified items, USN id'd M1 helmets.

Beautiful, wonderful office !!!

In memory of 798 Marine Raiders who were killed in action in World War II.

In memory of four U.S. Army Servicemans from 328th regiment , 26th infantry division.

THOMAS BOWMAN KIA 10/30 1944

WILLIAM Bereza KIA 12/24 1944

CHESTER MUNDELIUS KIA 3/14 1945

ALAN Milne KIA 4/8 1945

 

And when he gets to Heaven, Saint Peter he will tell: "Another Marine reporting, sir — I've served my time in Hell!"

Very nice display,

 

I am curious about one thing, as I have often though of doing something similar to my headgear. How do you hand the headgear so that the sweatbands or the inner liners do not stretch? One other question as well if you do not mind me asking, do you clean the headgear periodically. I noticed that there is a heating/cooling vent near where the hats are. Do you have any concerns about the heat/cooling damaging the headgear??

 

Thanks again for sharing, very impressive display. I would like to hear more about your family history and the story behind the portraits on the wall..

 

 

Thanks again for sharing

So funny story on the covers, they were actually hanging off of push pins on the backs of the covers. They have been there for two years and the sweat bands/leather have not changed shape one bit. Im just in the middle of PCSing right now and i will have to set it all up again in my new office. i will be sure to post the new set up once I am all settled. The air vent didnt push any dust over the covers at all, though Im sure the cleaning lady that comes in three times a week helps keeps the dust down. When I took them off the wall, there was literally no dust on them. To hang the M1892 dress helmet, i ran some string through the wagon wheel and attached the string to a hook in the wall so it doesn't lean crooked to one side.
