Hello from the Chicagoland area

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm a relatively new collector out of Illinois. Don't expect to be making many posts myself, just here to ask questions when needed for the most part. I mostly collect camouflages/ uniforms and load bearing equipment from the Vietnam War and onward. I'm especially interested in the Marine Corps but I don't limit myself to collecting only objects related to them. I don't have a large collection  whatsoever but I do have a couple particularly interesting pieces, a couple sets of the experimental MCCUU uniform and a prototype MOLLE 1 rucksack, other than that not a noteworthy collector in the slightest. I look forward to reading, thanks for having me.

Welcome!  You're in the right place.  New collector myself - WWII 8th, 9th, 12th, 15 AF.  The past posts and collective expertise here have been a great resource and the folks here have a real sense of community.  Don't be shy about asking questions or contributing. Study, learn, ask your questions.  USMF has been a very positive place for me and I'm sure it will be for you.
