Hi,

My name is Jared and I am a 18 year old collector from New York. I started collecting almost 6 years now and I could not be more proud of my collection! It started with an interest in painted helmets but now I am mainly interested in collecting Purple Hearts. I am currently in college studying to become a social studies teacher. Growing up watching as many war shows and movies as my dad would show me made me fall in love with history. My all time favorite would be Band of Brothers. I have browsed this forum as a guest for about a year, but being in quarantine has made my quest for learning about this hobby reach an all time high. With that being said, I decided to join the forum! I not only joined the forum to learn new information, but to hopefully make some friends in the Militaria community. I also have an Instagram under the same name (Worldwar_Collector) that I must admit I have not been very active on. But I am looking to change that. Hopefully being active on here will also make me more active on there. I think I attached a picture of my collection but please let me know if it uploaded correctly as I am still figuring out this page. If you can see the picture I will post them individually over time, just thought I'd share the big picture right away.

I look forward to meeting and getting to know all of you as I join this forum marking a milestone in my collecting career!

-Jared

Welcome. Your collection looks interesting. If you need something to do, post some of your individual pieces. That way we will have something to do too!

That's not to far...I go camping at the Lake George RV park every one or two years which shouldn't be that far from you! Have you ever been to The Patriot in Lake George? It's a very nice Militaria shop with a Purple Heart museum in the back!

I don't know the father but the owner is certainly a very nice and knowledgeable person. I've only been to Saratoga Springs once for the horse racing so next time I go I'll definitely check it out!

Welcome from a native upstater. It's fabulous to get younger folks into this rewarding and important hobby. I am a 78th Division focused collector (50 years), so you are right in the heart of 78th country and I am jealous!! Welcome. These folks are a wealth of expertise and wisdom. You will be glad you found this site.

Thank you for the warm welcome! I've haven't had too many interactions with members on here yet but those that I have talked to have been very knowledgeable and helpful. I am certainly glad so far!

Thank you for the welcome! I'll definitely have to go check it out when this whole quarantine thing is over. And thank you, it's certainly not as big as most collections on here but it's good enough for me!
