Links concerning Military and Naval Insignia or Artifacts

Certain links may be down. If I am unable to restore them they will be deleted. I am listing links, which might be of interest to those using this site. Some are commercial sites of individuals involved in selling books, artifacts, etc. I do not intend the simple act of my listing them as a personal endorsement of those businesses.
