Oh My.. The Find of the Year!

Article about: Wow !

  1. #1

    Default Oh My.. The Find of the Year!

    Hello Everyone!

    Well I recently purchased this trunk from someone in Dickinson, ND.
    The owner of the trunk is Nick Marell: 82nd Airborne.

    Photographs taken with HQ Co. 2nd 3N 505th PRCHT. INF. Regt. Fort Bragg, NC.
    Capt. H.M. Howard ComdG.

    If you like Airborne, this is for you.

    The trunk weights a good 150-200lbs.. I opened it up and this is what I found.


    Each section will be posted with a description... This may take awhile.

    This is for sale... every item or the whole thing, Its just way to much to store!

    Any Info would be nice!!
    Thanks
    Cody
