Many famous people used to go to military shows and draw a good size crowd!

 

Got many autographs from pilots,MOH winners! sailors from Indy,Bismarck etc!

 

Most are gone now!  SOS always has super quests!

 

 

Tibbits was one I got to meet and because of history,very glad I did!

 

 

Anybody have something to show!

Super cool! Not exactly military, but Sis and I do fan mail to many people we like, and were happy to be doing it when some of the classic era performers were still living. We also collect old sheet music (to play mostly, some for the covers) and we got many of them signed by performers who were on the cover - Joan Fontaine, Ann Blyth, Jane Powell, Tony Martin, etc. Some of my autograph highlights ---- Deanna Durbin (my first ever, sent for when we were about 13), Joan Sutherland (my second, and so cool!), Luise Rainer (got it when she was 100 years old!), opera soprano Renata Tebaldi (didn't get this in person - went to an estate sale of an amateur singer and she had been a huge Tebaldi fan - hundreds of LPS of her, etc. - and in a stack of opera librettos I got from a cupboard, one was signed by Tebaldi!). 

 

My military autograph prize . . . I have three letters written by my GGUncle from while he was serving in Germany in 1947. -grin- So amazing!

 

My military autograph dream . . . Wish I had a real thing written by my GGGUncle who was KIA in the USAAF in WWII.

 

Non-relative autograph wish - WWII US pilot Lucian K. Wernick.

I wrote to darn near every general,Admiral,space astronaut,ship and sub,airbase,medal of Honor

people!

 

I got the west point,naval,airforce academy books that had address etc!

 

And I got reply froms hundreds!  They sent patches,helmets.pics autographed!

 

Nobody was to busy to send stuff!

 

In the 1980s it cost a quarter to send letter! Most ships or subs had public relation

officer!

 

 

I even wrote the Whitehouse people and they all sent pics and autographs!

 

Colin Powell, and all the folks sent things right before and during Iraq war!

 

They were happy to send personal cards etc!

 

Space and moons walkers!

 

 

It was a great period!  One day I got a helmet from a Admiral pilot!

 

 

Music

 

I bought large group from band person who died and had autographed pics of the greats of the 1960's!

 

He played with so many and all he had to do was leave a request in their room and they signed!

 

Dean Martin,Jerry Lewis,Billie Holiday!,Louie Armstrong, I mean the top folks of Vegas!

 

 

So much fun collecting stuff!  Glad to see Stratafan you like so much different areas!

That's cool! We got John Glenn to autograph his autobiography (which we loved!). I tried and tried for astronaut Mike Collins, but never succeeded. He is my all-time favorite astronaut! Was I excited to see the Google Doodle that he narrated just recently for the Moon Walk anniversary!
