Anyone Have a militaria display at work?

Recommended Posts

As I sit here in my office at work, looking around I see my framed picture of a B-17 in flight autographed by Capt. Julian Roadman of the 401st Bomb Group, my other framed picture of the USS Seattle, three models of WW II tanks, and a large number of Civil war photographs which I have displayed on a shelf. Am I alone in this, or do others decorate their offices with militaria as well? I look forward to your responses.

Only the Iwo Jima flag raisers as my computer's background (or wallpaper) at work.

Although mostly it is a photo of my girlfriend I'm looking at. :blush:

Yes I do. The patients offices are turned into mini museums for the patients and friends to enjoy while waiting on the me.

I have general officer uniforms, Medals, ribbons, minis, grand crosses etc.

The patients really seem to like it. They even bring a different friend and or family member on the next visit to enjoy the things I have on display.

I often have new purchases delivered to work.... my colleagues seem to have eventually gotten over the occasional rifle, uniform or some odd bit of green cr*p being taken out of a parcel... does that count? haha

Hi there,

 

while I worked in Hanau, Germany I had a military display right behind me/my desk.

I worked for the US Army Europe, 3rd COSCOM, 626th MCT (Movement Control Team) - BMCT HANAU (Branch Movement Control Team) located at Bldg. 23 at Pioneer Kasern, Hanau Germany.

 

I used to deal with lots of S4 (supply) ppl and other customers who came from Rhein Main, they usually left me a crest or patch for my collection.

 

 

Sorry the pic is so blury.

I have a modern-made WW1 victory medal pinned to the wall in my cubicle.

 

I get a lot of people who ask if it is some kind of Gay Pride medal because of the rainbow ribbon pinch.gif

 

I also keep pictures of my wife on my desk for when I get these awkward questions...

 

This is my computer desktop at work:

Isn't my collection, but I noticed today the AI ('Army Instructor') for JROTC at my school has an interesting office. He's got a bunch of toy M2 Bradley AFV's, a bunch of his medals framed on the wall (extra copies, of course, since he still wears the uniform every day) and a very impressive flag from Gulf War I with the signatures of his whole unit up to Bde. CO.

 

The closest thing I have to an office also serves as my war room and my bedroom, so I guess that doesn't really count. :lol:

Like Glenn, I usually have a show and tell with one or two guys at work when a new item arrives. I do not however have anything on display at work, as we have too many people whom I do not know or trust coming in and out, especially over the weekend whan I am not there.

Been active duty USAF, I put together an AAF to USAF transition shadowbox. It hangs in my office, along with various warbird pictures and an autographed Chuck Yeager commemorative coin display and various flying scarves.

I have a cork board at work covered with spare US Army patches simular to yours. Since I work on a military installation with lots of active duty and retired military it's frequently a topic of conversation since folks can identify with a few units. It also generates a few offers to give me spare patches.

 

Small world, I was stationed in Hanau with the 8th Maintenance Battalion, 3rd COSCOM years ago as a Company Commander. My HQ was on Pioneer with workshops on Grossauheim Kaserne and I lived on Fliegerhorst Kaserne.

Jerry,

 

I like your avatar. We have one similar hanging in our Lieutenant's office.

 

Some really great displays guys. I love seeing what others have done and of course getting some ideas of my own. thumbsup.gif
