A canteen

My Grandfather marked his Canteen with where he went and dates. I’m told that the first Canteen he did this too was confiscated and he was told not to do that as the Germans might find out where they had been. He responded something along the lines of, “We shot at them, they knew we were there.”

  1. Nice. So awesome to have the stories that go with this stuff.
    I found one that belonged to a 503rd PIR trooper. It had Germany and Okinawa on it. No Vietnam so not sure if the owner got sent home before they deployed or what.
