Estate Sale Finds: Vietnam patches plus


Recommended Posts

Tonomachi

I got lucky yesterday at an estate sale as they are normally held on the weekends or sometimes three days in a row from Friday through Sunday.  As this was on a Thursday none of the completion was there so I could take my time and not rush through things.  I found a number of patches that were between 3 to 5 dollars apiece.  They belonged to a deceased US Army veteran by the name of Dominic S. Tasa 26 Mar 1932 - 18 Feb 2010.

The veteran had served in Germany and South Vietnam.   The veteran had gone through NCO School in Germany and I found this graduation or memorial booklet with lots of photographs of the veteran.  I found this plaque that was probably given to the veteran upon leaving South Vietnam.  I found a box full of color slides which are full of images of military life and South Vietnam.

Lot's of very nice eye candy in that man's collection. 

 

I especially like the 41st Civil Affairs Company Vietnam patch  --->  “WE’RE NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE” The 41st Civil Affairs Company in Vietnam, Part II

Look over the right shoulder of the soldier in the photo and you'll see the 41st CA emblem behind him.

Wow! I've never been to an estate sale that's had more than a patch or two.
