Greeting, I found this in my yard, near old Walter Reed, in Washington, DC. Is this a cannonball or ordinance. I assumed it was a shotput ball, and figured I should check, before continuing to use it as a gate/doorstop. Thanks in advance, for any information or direction.
Does anyone know what 55th was called in late 70-'s early 80's... my ex was with EOD on Belvoir , but I don't remember it being 55th! Thanks!! God Bless you all!
May be a shot in the dark but does anyone have the unit patch that Owens made a while back. I’d like to buy one if there are any spares lying around. Thanks in advance
Has anyone seen this lil guy? This is the first I’ve seen of it. It’s dated 2013
