    A shot of a very special item. This was given to me by my friend Scott (Bugme).

    This dog tag was worn by a Marine who had his attending nurse write his experiences in the book shown. The disc was one that he wore while in some of the hottest battles in which he was engaged. The book is initialed by the Marine (as his health was very poor) and the nurse signed the inside cover as well. Sadly, he is no longer with us...

    One of these days when I get everything finished and reorganized, I'll post an update here as a representation of my progression/digression (depending on your point of view) into collecting in other areas of history.

    Hi, and thanks. Yes indeed, the only way that would ever leave me is if it was returned to the person who gave it to me.

    I still have about 10% of the items you see. I do miss having some of the items, however, with the sale of the other pieces, I have been able to fund three incredible WWI aviation groupings, a cockpit from a downed German WWI aircraft and some other really rare aviation-related items.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
