Hi everybody!
My name is Erik, I'm going 16 this month and I live in Stockholm, Sweden!
I'm a big WWII "nerd" and "my part" of the war is the European Theater, D-day mostly. I've been to Normandie 3 times and my family is tired of going there so I'm planning a roadtrip to France when I'm 19 with some friends.
Found the site when I googled WWII Forums. I have already found some very interesting threads and I plan to stay here for a while! :)

Howdy Halldin, glad to have you.

everyone one here is also a 'nerd'

Speak for yourself, Felis catus. I'm no nerd. Geek maybe, due to my profession, but certainly not a nerd.:nerd: :stickpoke:

Welcome, Halldin. Glad to welcome a fellow "obsessive" on World War II. This is the right place to come to find more! Enjoy.

Welcome Halldin great to have you
Anothony 'Swoff ' Swofford : A story: A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands, love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper; his hands remember the rifle.

Since I don't know where I should ask this, I'll do it in my own thread:
Is there no PM on this site? Can't find it anywhere.
And I wanna create a thread where I need some help identifying an object from WWII, but I also want to talk about the place where I found it, in which section should I do that?

Yes there is a PM function, click on the member name and select send private message. Though, you're a recruit so it will be limited.
As for the other question, that would probably be the militaria section.
Oh, I almost forgot, Welcome!

Thanks for the answer. Don't want to make a fool out of myself in my first thread.
EDIT: Eh, second thread.

Cheers and Welcome Erik! Glad to have you with us. We are a Forum full of WWII nerds, so don't feel bad. :D

As for the PM restrictions, we have many problems with spamming members and the like, so we have instituted a short trial period for all new members. Once you have been a member for 3 days and have made 5 posts, you will get access to the messaging system. I can see that you aren't a spammer so even though you have one more day in your trial I've fully activated your account and you can now message whoever you like. ;) Cheers!
