    Thank you. I am now trying to figure out where it came from. Most of my great uncles and great great uncles were in the army, and this was something that I have never seen before until now. I am curious as to whose it was and where exactly it came from, but I will probably never find out.

    Just for clarification, the Navy Sport's Eagle that my friend Glenn66 is referring to is similar yet larger with a different background as you can see here...
    cheers, Glenn

    Who knows where he picked it up. Things like this were swapped and traded around, soldier to soldier over there after the war. A really cool bring back eagle.
