I spent my youth watching the likes of “Combat” and the “Rat Patrol” on television. Watching those programs, I acquired a deep fondness for military style gear. When I joined the Scouts, my first gear items were all hand-me-down pieces of military gear and items made for me by family. One such piece of gear was a WWII era canteen and old canvas canteen cover with the US label. In my later years, I spent a lot of time wishing I still had that set and wondering whatever happened to it. Until now.
