    I enjoy military pics & found this site by chance. My bio pretty well tells the story - retired railroader - Viet Nam vet with 2 tours in northern I Corps (68-69&70) - author & co-author of 5 non-fiction military related books. Currently working on the 2nd volume of my 1st book "Italy's Battle Rifle" which is tentatively due out in 6 months or so.

    Collector of Italian arms & militaria. I have travelled to Belgium a couple of times & have visited historical places like Ypres & Liege with my friends there. Am currently saving up for trip #3 which hopefully will include Verdun/Ft Douamont.

    Dad was on the Nevada at Pearl Harbor & like many vets never said much of what happened Dec 7. He also served on the Corregidor & Bowie.

    I look forward to more vintage Italian military pics! Steve

    Yes. I live in the very western part - within sight of Wyoming. There's a little farming locally, but it's mostly prairie.

    "Toy Soldiers, volume 2". Russ made a number of interesting military model dioramas, and I wrote narratives for them. I'll post a link when it's back from the printer.
