WWII Item - Thanksgiving Edition...
Happy Thanksgiving errbody.

I'd like to take a minute to say Please Remember our Troops that are Deployed this Thanksgiving day and they can't be with their families. If you are interested you can donate to the USO or Operation Homefront to help our service members today. These are the two that I donate to. Mods please remove if this is unacceptable.

These items are small and seem insignificant to some, but as time goes on I will get to the really cool stuff like guns, uniform, bombs etc.. lol

In collecting these things I have sub categories in my collection. Christmas, Food, Music and Oklahoma. ANd this falls in the food categories. Thanksgiving Day menus... There are not as many Thanksgiving Day Menus as there are Christmas menus .But since today is Thanksgiving I thought I would share the couple that I have.

The first one.. Fort Sill Oklahoma. 1942.

The second.. Bombardier Training School Deming NM

and Finally... This Thanksgiving Day Menu came from the USCGC Ingham... US Coast Guard ship.

And here is a little WWII info on the Ship.

Ingham was built at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. The Treasury Department awarded her contract on 30 January 1934. Her keel was laid on 1 May 1935, and she was launched on 3 June 1936, along with her sisters William J. Duane, Roger B. Taney and the George W. Campbell". Ingham was christened by Ms. Katherine Ingham Brush on that date and the new cutter was formally commissioned on 12 September 1936.


Ingham served with distinction during World War II on convoy duty. Protecting ships ferrying vital supplies to Britain, Ingham battled stormy weather, German U-boats, and enemy aircraft. On 15 December 1942, during one crossing, Ingham engaged and sank the enemy submarine U-626.[3] After 1944, Ingham served as an amphibious flagship and she would later take part in three campaigns in the Pacific Theater. Ingham was the last active warship in the US fleet with a U-Boat kill.

Here are the Convoys that USCGC Ingham sailed with.

That would be worth a pretty penny... I have two Items from the USS Oklahoma.. Sunk at pearl Harbor.. One of the Items ironically is dated 1941. The year that it sank. But that's for another post.

This was the largest convoy battle of war. Allies lost so many ships they thought they'd have to abandon convoys.

Tide turned in may when they sank 41 uboats
