November 30th, 2018

November was a an exciting month at Military Antiques & Museum.  With the Thanksgiving Holiday last week, we had a chance to meet with many of our customers who made a point to visit friends and family in the San Francisco Bay Area so they could make a stop with us.  We met many new people and saw familiar ones as well.  One of the new visitors to our store was Anthony Thomas, a B-24 nose gunner during WWII.  His stories of transporting their B-24 across the Atlantic, being struck by lightning, and stuck in Morocco for a week before being repaired and continuing to England alone is a part of history that we do not always get to hear about. The best was the unofficial name they gave their B-24: "The 4F", because it was constantly breaking down.

This time of year is perfect for purchasing Gift Certificates for that hard to buy for collector.  Click this link to purchase a gift certificate in any desired amount.  If you are looking for a gift for that hard to shop for collector, a Gift Certificate might be the best way to go.
