My Son Liam's M-38 FJ Helmet
I would like to show off what used to be my FJ helmet and now I gave it to my son. My son Liam is 11 (I use his picture as my avatar) and I got him into collecting when he was 5 (he is now 11). My son is very bright and works very hard in school and makes straight A's. So I told him I would give him a helmet and he picked the FJ that I own. He is very proud of it.
The helmet was obtained years ago and came from an 82nd AB veteran. Here it is.

Very nice lid Jody and good to see you started your son early on the collecting bug.
its just an opinion.
He made a good choice
Hi Jody, You're telling us he's bright!! That's stating the obvious as he did not choose a post war over painted M42!! A great helmet , I wish my dad had collected these things ,but then again I would not have gotten the straight A's! Leon.

I will not be able to, Liam will not allow it, my son is an only child and would hate to share his room and collection (I can understand that since I was an only child too). I will keep your request in mind.
