Notes from the Webmaster:



As some of you may know, I was banned from US Militaria Forum on heresay. It is not right, and is very upsetting that USMF has gone to such a deplorable level. Beware of the administration, they will make you seem like the bad guy. If you continue to use USMF, please, consider switching to IACMC forum, a new forum that embodies truthfullness and what is right. It found on the links page.


I have uploaded a few songs from the New York Military Band. They are played from Edison records and were probably recorded around the end of WWI.

Welcome All Fellow Militaria Collectors!

Most of you know me from or, and My name is Andrew, and I collect military items, commonly referred to as militaria.  I am 13 years old, and I live in Mocksville NC.  I have been collecting since I was 8 years old. My first item was a 10th Mountian Division Pilot's Satchel. I have many friends in the militaria field. I think my best military piece would have to be my WWII Army Field Desk. It has a stool and many drawers. I recieved it one year for Christmas. The image below my title is the Air Force ROTC Det. 595 patch. I use this as my avatar because I love NC State! GO STATE!

I want to be in the Army when I grow up. One of my favorite patch types to collect is the Theatre Made stuff coming out of Iraq right now! I support our military in Iraq and all over the world. With-out them, you wouldn't be reading this in English right now. It might be in German or some other language like Japanese. Another thing I like to collect is Challenge Coins. Challenge coins came about during WWI by pilots.

A little bit about my name. I recently changed the name of this site to "Front Line Militaria". I had thought about changing it for a while, and this site hasn't been touched in a while, so I thought why not? It has a nice ring to it. A lot of nice people have tought me about military stuff. I never would be here with-out them. So, THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE HELPED ME IN THIS HOBBY! I also, like to hear veteran's stories about the military.

If you have something military and you want to get rid of it, let me know. Maybe we can work something out. If you are a patch collector, please send me your trade list. I hope to meet some nice people with this site. So, thanks for visiting my site!
