    Little grouping from a good ol' boy from Nashville. 30th Division 114th Regiment Field Artillery. I bought it in a lot of items having no idea that they all belonged to the same man. Certainly an unexpected surprise.

    The contents are pretty self explanatory. The medal on the red, white, and blue ribbon is a victory medal from Nashville, and next to it a veterans medal from the same city.

    I was really hoping the collar disc was for the 29th Division's 114th infantry regiment. In reality, this disc would be indistinguishable from the 29th's infantry regiment had it not been part of a named group. The search continues I suppose.

    The Disc is personalized, believe it or not, I'll post more on it later.

      The 30th is still around today-- with the SAME patch. It is the 30th BDE out of NC National Guard and has served in Iraq.

      Dr_Rambow, I see that your neck of the woods is underwater and experiencing power outages. You won't see this comment until later, but I'd like you to know that we are remembering you now in prayer.

      I posted a lot of things specifically because of the hurricane. Where we are, we were lucky enough not to receive too much damage and didn't so much as lose power. I really appreciate your thoughts, it means a lot. Keep the other families in New Jersey, specifically from the shore and around NYC, in your thoughts as they are having a hard time.

      You're very welcome, sir. We are very glad to hear that you are well and safe! We we will continue to pray for those along the Eastern seaboard who have suffered such frightful losses.

      It appears you are gaining ground in my favorite collecting era! I have a pocket mirror similar to the one shown here.
