    WWII Museum Center for Collections & Archives

    I'd love to have a week of uninterrupted time in there! The Museum is interesting enough, but all of that would be awesome! https://get.google.com/albumarchive/104745627018165888181/album/AF1QipNAy4vtSp3PP5dd9DDvBAKXMhzZ5uzN7KGehJDl
  5. Interesting story. You hear a lot of people talking about finding war time relics after a relative dies, but to find a box of things that aren't even your relative's would be very odd.
  6. Very cool! Thanks for posting an update and stick around!
  7. Rest in peace, sir!!!
  8. How did this become the Merry Christmas posting area? That's OK, I'm easy! Merry Christmas (it's currently the 6th day of the Octave of Christmas so it's still the Christmas season!) Also, Have a great and prosperous New Year!!
  9. Rest well, sir! Thank you for your service.
  10. Yep, that's me in the back right. Since the majority of my photos from that trip were digital, I changed the file name for all of the pictures (several hundred!) with either the place or name of the individual/s therein. I made sure to do this within a few months of returning so I would not forget names. I also have a headshot of each of the Marines in my platoon with their name tape showing. I knew that I would want to be able to put names to faces some day!
  11. Wow! I have a hard time remembering people I served with two years ago! I will say, however, I do remember guys from my platoon in Iraq a lot better than others - and that's been 13 years (hard to imagine it's been that long). I imagine that being with the same set of guys for 2-3 years would really sear details into your memory. I was only with my guys from 9 months.

    Observing Veteran's Day

    For the Veteran Community, I will say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our service is for the country and what is the country if not the great folks in it. People like you Marion - and the other great people I've met here on the forum - are what make the country worth fighting for.
  13. That was really cool! I love the old "40s guy" announcer. On a more serious note, I just wonder how many people were hurt or killed during those early tests and demonstrations. If that thing flips over, you're pretty much done for if your aren't thrown clear - not that that is very good for you either. When we were in Iraq, I always told my guys to buckle up - even in combat. You're not good in a firefight if you are concussed from banging against the inside of the vehicle.
  14. I saw the Lt Dan band while on TAD (TDY to you Army types) to 29 Palms, Ca in 2007. It was really awesome - he does a great job!

    The DPAA (http://www.dpaa.mil/) are really unsung heroes of our day. Every week I am hearing about US servicemen being returned to the US after being missing for 75 or more years. It is truly remarkable. I am glad that we in the US still have the will and desire to search for all of our missing servicemen.
