    Smile My Helmet Collection... My Introduction

    I figured I'd better introduce myself here on the forum. My name is Scott and I live in the city of Two Rivers, Wisconsin right on the shores of Lake Michigan. I got interested in Militaria as a kid back in the 60's watching Rat Patrol, Combat, Garrisons Guerrilla's etc. I started my actual collection in the early 70's and have been building it since then. I'm a moderator in the Helmet and Protective Gear section of the USMF and go by the same forum name over there. Below is a round the room synopsis of my collection, I'll post close-ups as time permits.

    Hi Scott and Welcome!!!,

    I just had to say that your collection is absolutely stunning!!! That's one of the finest U.S helmet groupings i've ever seen, wait 'til Nick D sees those babies.

    Seriously Impressed, Ned.

    When will I "send" you a plane ticket??? To stick with your collecting interest... my answer is: When pigs fly.
