I think I might need to come by for a drink!

Second that! What is your tan officer tunic in the one corner about?

 

Thanks,

Its actually just a place holder right now. It belonged to Lt D.R. Hickman. I am holding that spot for a 5th Marines WW1 tunic. But I had it, so it went up on display. i have done no research on him yet.

Thanks! Ive got more 782 gear than I know what to do with! Going for the dress/service uniforms right now, but I may change it up if it i get tired of looking at it!

Nicely done, I noticed the pool table but no pull out couch. I don't have a pool table because I figured when I was sent to my man cave to sleep a pull out couch might be easier on my back.

 

Nice place you have there, well done!

Most excellent!

 

Great sign of Gen. Wilson!

That rexruiting poster came out of the US Embassy in Cuba back in the 70s while my father was on Embassy duty there!

As I dont have a ton of room to place my things without it looking to cluttered, ive had to choose the display items that directly relate to my family. Heres a few close ups of some of the items.

 

These pint glasses are filled from sand from Iwo Jima, if you notice, there are actually bullet cases from the beach. Went to Iwo back in 2005. The photo in the back is of my grand father goofing around at machine gun school in pendleton 1944.
