Hello all,


This is a rather special item in my collection. It's a VFW Garrison Cap used at VFW Post #3160, which is in Norfolk Virginia. It has a leather sweat band and a silk interior. It was either made or given in 1951 as it has the date stamped on the sweat band.


I found this at a local antique mall and it has been a favorite in my collection. I have an American Legion cap from a post on the Eastern Shore which I believe I'll post soon.
