    Default My Great Uncle's belongings

    None of these items are in my collection, they belong to my cousin who was nice enough to let me photograph these pieces of history and share it with you all!

    I apologize in advance for most of the paper items appearing the same color as i did not have adequate lighting at the time.

    My cousin told me that he remembers seeing many TR items that had been brought back, several Lugers, a few daggers and other misc. militaria, unfortunately my great uncle sold all of it to fund his life long obsession of Ford Model A's and started a paint business specifically for Model A's.

    What my cousin has left is a collection of ww2 army documents and booklets, his re-issued medals as well as a few personal effects.

    PFC Robert C. Drew - E Company 253rd Infantry Regiment, 63rd Infantry Division - better known as Blood and Fire!

    Since the uploader is not working correctly, i uploaded them to photobucket for the time being!

    Thank you all for the comments! I was putting away the items i took to share with my cousin, and unbeknownst to me, he stuck one of the three blood and fire pins into my backpack!

    Im also curious what these two pins represent, they look like rank chevrons?
