Uncle Sam The Professor Is In

August 25, 2011

Some times even folks like me who watch eBay pretty often can come across items that they don't know much about.  Luckily with a few clicks of the mouse you can research items and figure out what you've got.  That happened to me when I came across the acronym SAARF.  So what does it stand for?

In February 1945, when the defeat of Germany appeared imminent, the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF) was provided with a mandate for dispatching troops whose mission would be to secure the safety of Allied Prisoners Of War and to provide for their early evacuation. As a result of its mandate, SHAEF created, in March 1945, The Special Allied Airborne Reconnaissance Force, or SAARF.

Now that you've had your history lesson enjoy checking out the results from these top selling items in the USA category of WWII on eBay.
