I have my great grandpas patches and metals, my uncles medals and ranks, and my brothers ranks. No matter what they are, there will always be a story to them. Keep them maintained and put away.

Only thing for me is none of it is actually from who got it for example the flag was from my grandpa but he got it from a friend that did fight in imperial Japanese Ocupated territory I got a bayonet the same way from the same guy but my grandpa is trying to restore it.

I have an actual fatigue shirt from the third armored division. I need to find out from what era though. I also have a standard issue shovel from the Vietnam era. It was my grandpa's but he was in Germany. Besides that most of my collection is toys that are both or either from war eras or rare war related toys.

You don't choose the tank. The tank chooses you, and when it does respect it and it will respect you.
