Hey everyone, new member here.  I have very little experience with old military items.  I spent 5 years in the Army and 2 in Iraq as a 31b(MP).  Looking forward to gaining knowledge and getting to know some new people.

Welcome to the forum, and to collecting. This may be the best forum to belong too if your starting in the hobby, most of the collectors here are very patient, and will help you a great deal! :)
