    Thanks, all, for the kind words! The 30th ID group (which by the way is not named or attributed to one person) is my favorite find as well, along with the XX Corps Ike.

    OB,
    I'm in Southeastern PA, right outside of Philly but visit Adamstown, PA (about 6 hours SE from Erie) frequently. Adamstown, if your unfamiliar with it, is the self proclaimed antique capital of the world and home of Renninger's, which is an indoor/outdoor antique market open on Sunday's with anywhere from 400-600 antique dealers and yardsaler's. In addition to Renningers, there are tons of dealers and antique shops/markets in Adamstown.

    I also hit a lot of garage sales in my area and have a dealer I visit on occassion in Cheltenham, PA.

    In addition, I recently started placing want ad's for militaria on Craigslist, which is how I obtained the Ike, sleeping bag and WWI ammo box, amongst other items.

    And finally, I'm on the board of a non-profit thrift shop and am given first option to purchase any military items found during house cleanouts or given as donations to the shop.
