Re: Rugs,flag,shemags

Very cool items.  the souvenir rugs are very good to see.  Did you bring them back yourself or buy them?  My neighbour is an Iraq and Afghanistan vet, he was wounded on separate occasions  by friendly fire and an IED.  He also served in Ireland, Balkans and Sierra Leone and maybe elsewhere.


Regards,

Jerry B.

Thanks guys. No. I did not serve. They were doing a reduction in force after 'Nam. Check out the link about war rugs. Those came from a S.F. guy. The rug & R.P.G. 21 tube came from a guy living in Islamabad Pakistan when the Russians were there. He was working for the Asian Studies Center in Washington D.C.. When he was leaving he sent a pile of stuff to a friend in Virginia(he did a few of the Ospery Pub. Men at Arms books). He works at the same place. I got a bunch of stuff from there. Rich A. in Pa.

Those rugs could be like the magic carpets that you can ride on.
