We were back in the US again this March and we took the oppurtunity to visit our friend Kammo-Man as well as paying a visit to some of the best militaria collections in the world.
Diablo guarding Kammo Mans war-room.

I always store my MP40 pouches on a watering can, its the only way...
Amazing decorated Vietnam Helicopter helmet, its an SP4-H I think. Note the SOG style Green Beret & skull on the side.
A Vietnam era grouping beloing to Associated Press reporter Holger Jensen, including his tailor made Tiger Stripe uniform, AP marked helmet, vaptured NVA belt and paperwork describing where he got the uniform and the NVA belt. Here is a report filed by Jensen in 1972. Some other stories can be found here and here.
After a day at Vintage Productions we had our own show-n-tell, nearest the camera is our new named SOG uniform belonging to Major Thomas Dolighan the S-4 at FOB 3.
Answers on a postcard for those who know the camo on the right...
We paid a visit to possibally the worlds best collection of WW2 German uniforms, this is only about a 50th of what we saw but a nice highlight. This is a mint Luftwaffe Splittermuster 41 smock (if my research is correct)
We then attended a meeting of the LA collectors guild, held at the home of another great collection. Again this is a highlight with some detailed shots below.
We also popped into Paul Miraldi's house to see is war-room, which had change again...
