We had well over a 100 members family and friends attend the Veterans Day event at the post so limited on space I limited the number of theater made patches I put on display. In attendance was a member of Merrills Marauders, Korean War 2nd ID soldier, Vietnam and members of the armed forces who have served in military operations since the early 1980s.

Awesome display. Any chance to get a closer look at the 332nd uniform? Looks great

"In almost all wars, the sight of foreign troops brought fear and terror to the local people, destruction and often senseless killing of local citizens. However, the sight of the American GI always brought smiles and joy to the local French people. They knew we were there to liberate, not to conquer; to help, not to terrorize."

Captain Leo T. Hury, M-Company, 330th Infantry Regiment, 83rd Infantry Division.

In honor of Captain Leo, March 19, 1920 - June 10, 2012

Nice job, great to see folks putting their memorabilia to work. I hauled out my 1 ton 16"/50 battleship round center stage to Delta Airlines Vet Day celebration in their hangars.....over 30 aircraft were on display, F16, F18, C130, three Ospreys, Kc135, C47 from Normandy, Cobra, numerous warbirds, biplanes, the finest event I have seen in years....the F16s and F18 departed with full afterburners....three Ospreys came, two departed....one left on the ramp due to maintenance issues. Pictured is our CEO who,attended the two day event.

Very nice display. I am particularly impressed by your theater-made patch collection! Thank you for sharing.

There is a LOT of theater made insignia, too.
