So as I was packing up to move to a new city I found lots of neat stuff that was "lost" over the years and thought it would make a fun thread.

That being said if anyone found cool stuff while cleaning, take a picture and post it!

Some of the stuff I found:

Sergeant Major of the Army coin . For non-military types these are very rare since only one person holds this rank at a time. (I got this for escorting him around our camp in Kuwait.)

New Zealand money! (I know to some forum members this won't be cool since you all live there :p)

Japanese military patch I got for helping escort them to and from Iraq.

Hopefully I'll find more cool stuff to post, I still have a lot to dig through.

I know this is a pic forum, but is there a story with this?

Not a very exciting one :p

Basically at the beginning of the Iraq war (the second one) there was the need to escort coalition troops from Kuwait to bases in Iraq and I was on that mission for awhile and when we escorted Japanese troops we traded patches. We gave them American flag patches and they gave us Japanese patches.

I completely forgot about it until I found it while cleaning.
