of World War One Memorabilia.

I was still in grammer school when my father gave me the medals that he was awarded during his time in World War One. That was the start of my odyssey. During the 1960's I would visit a VA hospital and became friendly with some of the World War One veterans. Some of the souvenirs were given to me by these heros of The Great War. Sad to say of the four million Doughboys that served in the war there are only one thousand alive today. The majority of my collection was acquired during my travels to Europe, Canada and the USA.
