    Hello everyone. I'm pleased to have found this forum, as I'm hoping I can lend a hand as well as be helped as we dig deep into the worst conflict in human history.

    I am an Army infantry veteran, got out as a sergeant with one tour in Iraq. I've always been a military history buff, with particular interests in the American Revolution and the Second World War. I read many memoirs before enlisting, and decided to write my own story. It's the only way we can get a glimpse of "what it was like." In particular, the ETO has always piqued my interest, and I've got a family member who served in the 36th Div in Italy.

    I got into living history a few years ago with the Rev War, and have now added a WWII impression of a US infantryman. (I'd gone to a WWII event in 1940s civilian clothes and vowed to come back to it the next year with the CIB I earned, haha.) I'm a bit of a collector besides. Studying history is one thing, holding it is another.

    All-around history nerd and tireless researcher here that's pleased to make your all's acquaintances.
