What Our Veterans Brought Home Generations Ago

1

As we prepare to honor those who have served our country we wanted to take a look at what many veterans brought home.

They packed their foot lockers with photos, uniforms, helmets, trench art, buttons, flags, and a variety of other military memorabilia.

In WW II many veterans brought back the spoils of having defeated the Germans, however, many of these items are not permitted to be displayed on certain sites because of what they represent. They can be sold, but many public websites do not permit them to be displayed for sale on the internet. Our veterans brought them home with good and honorable intentions having fought battle after battle, but today flags, buttons, cap badges, arm bands, post cards that were printed by the Germans during WW II and numerous other items are now being put up for sale as the greatest generation passes.

They are very collectible and there is nothing wrong or improper with these collections or those who purchase them. However, millions of people are affected by the site of this memorabilia because of the loss of family or friends during WW II.

As we prepare to celebrate all our Veterans let us remember the freedom they have made possible for us.
