Robert E. Lee Memorabilia Found at SOS $5 Box

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the click bait title but I couldn't resist. I was poking around a $5 bin and saw this set of dog tags and thought it neat that they still retained a P38 and a 17th Infantry medallion. I scooped them up, paid, and put them in my bag. Only when organizing and packing my finds for the day did I notice the name on the tags. Coincidently, the 17th Infantry was part of the assault on Marye's Heights at Fredericksburg and in the Wheatfield at Gettysburg. A 2007 entry on the Korean War Project notes that Lee was a member of E Company, 2nd Battalion and participated at Inchon and was at the Yalu River. Could be an interesting research project from the $5 bin!

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

I'm interested in anything to do with the 17th Infantry Regiment, and or the 7th Infantry Division and would be interested in buying, trading, or just talking about any items related to these units!
