    Hey everyone! a little bit about me..
    Im a Marine Corps Veteran. I served 2012-2016. I made it on one MEU and one SPMGTF.
    Diesel mechanic life was a good one. That's my background. I'm glad to be here.
    I recently created a website to make the collecting hobby grow and easier for us to navigate by bringing us all together.

    Would also like to share why I collect. I've only been collecting a year now. A good friend of mine showed me pieces of his collection on deployment. After that, I was hooked! My Great-grandpa was a medic in the US army during ww2. Funny story how that came about. Will look for a place to share that after this post. My wife's grandpa was in the AAC as a mechanic as well. Most of my family line is all military. I collect in both my grandparent's memory.

    Welcome. I don't collect myself but I'm always interested in the collections of others. Post pictures! I'm also anxious to read your grandfather's account.
