I would really like to get into this stuff but I don't know of any locations to find old relics. I am on a military base though, old spend shells and crap lays everywhere but that doesn't interest me.

That's everything I found about him...
i have a metal detector lazing about in my room, but no good places to take it, this being California. i might take it to the beach and go coinshooting one of these days.
No one here would like to go fight and die for our country.
That's how Belgians are....
-Germany starts war
-Germany fuck up a bunch of shit
-Birttan and Russia declare war
-America joins the war effort
-Germany is defeated
it was not so much as to save their nations as it was about keeping peace and not letting tyrants reign
Its like allowing china to spread all its communism around the world and being like "oh its cool"
That's a fact...
And only real reason that america joined was because the japs attacked pear harbor.
otherwise you guys would have been to late...
But yeah what do you guys know from Belgium... only thing you know is Brussels spouts, beer and french fries (actually is Belgian fries). try to find good fries in France Impossible!
This looks really interesting. I wish I could find some stuff. But alas, I am in Las Vegas, so i dont think there would be anything worth finding in the desert outskirts besides some scrap metal.
I wonder if there's anything where I live, but I doubt it, Sweden is pretty dull, the most I could find is probably some coins or something.
I know we had military bases here during WWII but there were no battles.
Still, I might be able to find at least something left over if I tried.
I'd try this, but if I found old, rusted guns I'd probably cry and let my /k/ommandus extremicus kick in.
All of that gun history lost to oxidation..
The only thing I've found in probably an hour of digging was a cat food tin lid, and some sort of musket piece. The thing was ancient, I found it in the woods while visiting connecticut. I believe it was the framework of the handle and part of the barrel.
Imagine this but without the wood and heavily rusted. It was hard to distinguish at first. I knocked some of the dirt and rust off.
There was one battle in Indiana of the Civil War.
It was also at the lowest point of the state, too.
I wish I could do this, but I don't feel like renting a metal detector and driving three hours to find some musket balls.
would vietnam be a good place?
Shame Australia has no war relics. We should probbably invade new zealand, that'd make some interesting relics.
Christ California, can't you have a battle or anything cool for once?
Here in my city there is nothing and kirederf7 had to go to Germany to find something...
btw never said I don't respect the people that fought here just saying Belgians don't care anymore...
If you watched some Belgian stand up comedians they laugh with ww2 the whole time!
This is illegal in Sweden
