    This is a copy of my Uncle’s Bronze Star letter he recieved in Iwo Jima. I’m displaying it in an old Underwood typewriter in my office.

    This is a portion of my book shelf in my reading room. I am obsessed with reading and King and Country metal toy soldiers. I have blended the two in my book shelf.

    This is a WWII foot locker in my reading room. It is a mix of stuff from WWII and WWI.

    This is a Denix MP40. I didn’t want to display Nazi items so I found the French Resistance arm band on eBay. Now the whole display is French.

    This is my uniform from the Navy in the early nineties. I added an SP arm band and hung up some early WWII replica items to give it that historical look. And yes I did have “Liberty Cuffs” while I was enlisted. I wish the were silk though, mine wher patches.
