    The first piece I remember was a Korean war era US helmet that belonged
    to my stepdad. The first pieces I actually bought were US shoulder patches.
    The Army surplus store down the street had big boxes full of them. You could
    buy all you wanted for $.10 apiece. That would have been about 1964-65.
