    knife ID?

    I got this knife years ago at an auction. In doing some research trying to identify the odd blade, I thought it might be a Camillus electrician's knife. So I tossed it in my electrical tool kit. Last week, I was helping a guy do some electrical work and pulled it out, then put it in my pocket. I've been carrying it off and on since then. Then I found out it might, in fact, be a WWII U.S. Army issued pocket knife (one of several different styles), though it lacks the TL 29 name and number embossing. It does, however, have wooden scales. The brass thingee locks what appears to be a scr
  2. I am posting a day early for this I will probably be fairly busy during the day tomorrow how ever.

The surrender came almost four months after the surrender of the Axis forces in Europe and brought and end to World War II Tomorrow it will have been 74 years 11 months and 30 days.

  5. Hello I just found out that Rosie the Riveter (Naomi Parker Fraley) died January 20, 2018, at age 96. She was an American icon calling for women to step up during WWII. My Mom worked in aircraft repair at Hill AFB. My wife's Mom worked assembling artillery shells at a factory in Ontario, Canada. Millions of women supported our military while keeping the home-fires going. I salute them all. hat
  6. Saw this on a local auction site. I like the layout (as if I need another toolbox). More pix here while it's still active: https://www.ebth.com/items/4748046-wwii-army-toolbox-with-assorted-tools
  7. BILLINGS, Mont. — Ben Steele's hold on his sanity as a prisoner of war after surviving the Bataan Death March relied on hidden scraps of paper, stolen pieces of charcoal and his artist's memory of scenes from his home in Montana. "I used to dream about Montana more than anything else, more than I did food — and I used to dream about food all the time," Steele once said. "I was awful sick and I thought I was going crazy, so I had to do something to occupy my mind," he said. Source: Military.com Read More..... In this 2015 photo, Bataan Death March survivor, a

  9. Our daughter was invited to play Amazing Grace on her violin for the funeral of a local hero, Sgt. Major Edward S Bardwell (1927-2016) WWII Veteran. The Sgt Major could be seen in every 4h of July parade riding a vintage WWII Willys and machine gun mounted. He was the man we all could not wait to see in the parade every year, and wave and cheer. We are all saddened to lose another WWII veteran as they leave us at the rate of 429 souls per day. Soon our WWII veteran will be no longer with us. If you know of a WWII veteran in your area, talk to them, hear their stories, record their stories, t
  10. In WWII, men averaged 10 days a year in combat, in Vietnam men averaged 240 days a year in combat. Source: the movie "Vietnam in HD"   My jaw dropped when I saw this. I have a day off work, and I am spending some time with this movie. I am currently in the year 1966-1967. Kids are at school, and I can fully engross myself in the movie, the stories, the men and the families, it's an incredible accounting of the war.
  11. We cannot even fathom what those men went through on that day 70 years ago, the withering gun fire, death all around, many did not even make it off their landing craft. Most of us have seen the epic movie "Saving Private Ryan" and that is the closest many of us will ever get to understanding what they did, and how they were able to survive. Just thinking about how these men knew they were going to die, yet they still charged off the LCVP's, or Higgins boats, sends chills up my spine along with a deep feeling of respect and awe, to even walk on the same ground as these veterans from all na
  12. Today while I was in Walmart, I met and talked to a WWII vet in a wheel chair. I always shake their hands and thank them. This guy was on a mountain the Pacific islands spotting Jap ships and subs. He detailed what his job was and the dangers involve. How ironic. I saw a History channel special about his job and how it change the course of the war. The Japs couldn't operate safely there to reload/recharge. He is a true war hero. By the way, he was waiting on his wife of nearly 65 years. IF YOU SEE A WWII VET THANK HIM. THERE ARE SO FEW LEFT YOU MAY NOT TO GET THE CHANCE AGAIN!
