WW2 Medical Detachment 39th Infantry bring backs

Recommended Posts

This gentleman, Luther Powers, according to his nephew, worked in hospitals. Interestingly, look how many Airborne tabs he collected. He stitched them into a long chain. The British knife with the chain is personalized and really cool. He must have had a lot of contact with the paratroopers. He sent the helmet, a Luft Q60 to the nephew during the war and specially picked out a small one for the boy. The Purple Heart is unmarked. I have his uniform in storage and will have to search for it. Unfortunately no photo of him.
