    A dinner menu dated 1946 inside an ike jacket.

    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    A couple of things come to mind. Years ago, I found a rolled up wad of Japanese Philipine occupation currency inside the liner of a Japanese helmet. I also found two ticket stubs inside the pocket of an 8th Airforce pilot's tunic for a Christmas concert in Milwaukee in December, 1945.

    Its the little things like that, Bob that put the bigger items in a greater perspective for me. Real life, not just trophies.

    At a large indoor flea market I bought a US canteen and cover for $5.00, the cover was missing the hook on the back and the canteen appeared to be painted a faded yellow color. When I took the canteen out of the cover I found a 1943 dated Ethocel canteen, an experimental plastic canteen. A trial was run in which few of these were made and even fewer survived the war making these somewhat rare and desirable to collectors. Last time I found one for sale online the asking price was in the $200 plus neighborhood. Click image for larger version.
