I have recently found this forum which I find very interesting. I had the privilege of serving with the 126th Infantry, Company "C" and Cannon Co. They all were a great group of men. There is a 32nd Division Veteran Association which is easy to join and meets annually.
The rings mentioned were hand made and obviously all different.The red part was made from a melted tooth brush.
I would be interested in getting the book that was mentioned and would gladly exchange information.
