My grandfather was a WW1 Veteran and he was a member of the VFW My grandmother was a member VFW Auxiliary. They both were members of a club called The Order of the Cootie & Cootiette. A earlier post by Militarist goes more into detail about this strange club. My grandparents seem to enjoyed belonging to this club as they traveled all over the US for the Cootie conventions.

    Militarist, Thank you I had long forgotten about my grandparents belonging to the Cootie Club until you had posted the cooties medal. I guess cooties isn't something we think about everyday!!!!

    Your welcome ttomtucker. I found a couple references to your "Tommy Tucker" watch. But nothing to the origin of what it might be related to. I will continue to research it, maybe I'll get lucky.
