Being a Paramedic and U.S. Coast Guard Corpsman myself I truly enjoy the history of my service (Emergency Medical Services). This “Ambulance Box” was given to me by my father-in-law, he was a picker himself and gave this as a gift after he bought it from a swap meet. He too was a Corpsman from the Navy then went to seminary school and became a Chaplin for the USN until his retirement as a LCDR. The unfortunate part is that he too was unsure of it's real history. I am trying to find out how old this item is and if this was used during the war (WWI, WWII, etc…) as a medic or corpsman item or as a civilian EMS item. Any information would be awesome to have so I do not need to shrug my shoulders when visitors come to my house and ask: when , where, how long ago?
