The site's size has doubled in less than a year! Originally this site was based around my on going 'German Malitary Collection', that is near all WWII stuff, but realizing after a lot of that was in place, I had piles of American uniforms gathering up as well in the corners of the storage, and what had really started my uniform collection was a dozen uniforms my friends and family had served in, given to me threw wills, or guifted to me in my youth because of my intrest in their service etc, a neibor's dress white uniform from WWII, left to me in his will! It really opened my eyes years later- when I looked up what the different awards and decorations on the chests represnted! I was shocked, and amazed at the same time, my mile manored, quiet, neibor Dave Davison, was a War Hero, he had served in the Philipines, and trewout the pacific, then in then fought the Germans, was wounded, and earned a Bronze Star, and Distinguished Service Cross, of course the CIB, a badge missing on the from the breast pocket, I think was a Pentigon Sevice - or Joint Chiefs insignia, likley lost in the back yard when I was a 10 year old kid! and he never said a word to anyone about it all - but I remember his wife (a WWII Army Nurse) and his pictures in the basement, they showed him-with McCarher, and some other high ranking officers adorning the walls he had been his aid! that lit my fuse and so, The US stuffgot added, most, now being of the Vietnam / Cold War era, Hope I did all the soldiers, and sailors and airman right, and represented correctly. Enjoy, and hope it adds to you resurch of these people who, would rather not talk about it-but diserve to have there service told. Mark Stone.
This is Dave old uniform.

Thanks for looking.
