Introducing myself
« on: June 04, 2017, 04:01:05 AM »
Hi.

My name is Stephan, I am 45 years old. I am working as a physician in a hospital in Germany.

Since I first visited the beaches in Normandy a few years ago I was trying to understand why those soldiers gave their lifes to free Europe and made it possible for me and my family to live as in a free world as we we do. I started to buy a few personel items to get closer to those people, to get an insight in their life, to get an idea why they left their families to free my future...

Well, after a while I have got a lot of things in my military collection and I did not find all the answers to my questions...

Thanks for adding me in this forum!
