    My Dad was on the Enterprise I think. Old Carrier. Funny how my Uncles Cap looks just like mine. 40 years apart. Now mine is 32 years old. JR

    P/S: I failed to mention that these are keepsake type Ships Caps, Our working lids were broke in and rough. I have those also. JR

      Would be interesting to know where these caps were made? I ask because my Monarch came out of the closing New Era factory in NY.

        I'm trying to find any connection between those caps and machining.subjects, yet fail miserably.
        But I have some caps and Monarch too.

            JR will be in deep trouble for forgetting to put "OT" in the title.

              Not with me, he won't!

              I was in the Army in Vietnam. I had a "short-timer's" cap. It was red and I put my rank insignia on it and wore it around the company area for two or three weeks while waiting to go. Battalion commander was a real starch-shirt, but even he did not say anything about it.

              My wife threw it out along with the rest of my cap collection while I was at work. Go figure!

              And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
              You will find that it has discrete steps.

                          In the UK, judges put on a black cap when they were going to sentence the prisoner to hang---.

                            I was at the Toledo RC show some years back, there was a model of the USS Indianapolis there was an elderly gentleman standing by it with a USS Indianapolis cap on. He was crying, this shows you how strong the memories are and how important things like caps and models can be to the people who lived them or had a friend that did. I graduated in1964, I worked with a guy who wore sailor hat and light blue work shirt every day, some people would make fun of him, I got to know him and he told me how he jumped off of the flight deck of the USS Lexington in WW 2. The only hat I have has NRA on it. I salute those that served.
