Pretty cool find when looking through my grandpas things...

I recently went to visit my grandmother in Louisiana. My grandpa passed away back in the mid-nineties and was a WW2 veteran. He had been a paratrooper and fought in Normandy and marched through Europe. During their first jump, he had a close encounter with anti-aircraft shelling and was deaf in his Left ear for the rest of his life. He went on to become a minister and I was only about 12 when he passed, and didn't know much about the war then...so I didn't really know what the specifics of his involvement were.

Anyway, My grandma brought out a box of some of his old things and we were going through them and I found some really cool (and creepy) relics from his 'travels' through Nazi Europe. Here's a pic of some cap insignia that he brought back with him:



Needless to say these are in mint condition for their age. I've done a little research and have found only a few pieces like this that are in this great of shape. I'm proud of his service and thought this was a cool find...thought I'd share.

We have stuff that my Grandpa kept from WWII which includes intelligence, photos, and maps before invading Iwo Jima.

IIRC, Pawn Stars won't buy anything Nazi related.

Unfortunately no. There is a lot of other stuff, though. An 'SS' belt buckle, a couple of N.S.D.A.P. dishes and a jewish star patch. Grandma said he sent a lot of things back while he was over there, and that they have some other things in storage as well. I wish there was artwork, though. No one did propaganda better than Nazi Germany. Their artists/PR minds were a military force themselves.

This. Over and over again. I really don't know that my generation or the one below mine could do half of the things that these guys had to do...I admire the bravery of our soldiers today, but this was a fight against true, undeniable evil. Scary shit.

You're hypin with the evil shit. We slaughtered all the natives and nobody complained or called us evil. They were our enemy in that conflict but I'm not gunna say they were evil. Not like guys on the German side could speak up and refuse to carry out orders. We're in the middle east right now imposing our will and telling people how to live in their own damn country.

Sure they could. When the time comes to unite against a TRUE threat, mankind can get it done.
