I found this helmet 18-20 years ago. I was tending the lawn of a customer when I noticed a huge pile of "stuff" set out for the trash to pick up. People are strange when it comes to throwing stuff in the trash. Anyhow Mrs.Johnson and I were talking after I finished up her lawn she was making a fuss about the pile of stuff being in her yard and how the kids came in and argued about who was gettin what .. haha (just a lonely elderly lady) well turns out the gentleman who owned the house had been in a old folks home for some years and had passed a few days prior. Kids came in and cleaned out the house. So we walked over and I started moving things to keep from killing her grass when I found this helmet.. well Ms.Johnson started reminiscing.. how the youngest son went wore this helmet everyday one summer. She made remarks that he(neighbor) a very strict and stern man but always seemed lost n that her and her husband assumed it was war related. So other than that I haven't been able to find out much.. I've not seen one with the badge on it.
