I'm hoping to get a couple of images from the Women's Army Museum today, but most of my focus was on underwear when I called.

And yeah, all of the veterans I've met (except my stepfather who served in Vietnam) are happy to see people wearing the uniforms from their times. I wonder if my stepfather's problem is that he doesn't want people thinking of something in his lifetime as "history".
