Hello, Conductor Bill!

I, for one, am looking forward to your sharing the broad and integrated view of history that you have to offer!

I recently and unexpectedly inherited a late WWII's soldier's collection of "memorablia":  things that he had captured or collected in the field, along with his personal medals.  I am overwhelmed - didn't know what half the things were, and couldn't identify some easily  - I had to research for two weeks, only to discover that I had been kindly given some rather rare and unique items, all contained in a singularly ugly, old metal box.  I haven't been visiting my normal CW sites as frequently lately, as I touch and learn what these rather amazing pieces signify.....WWII is coming to mean so much  more to me now than watching Band of Brothers ....
