Donald Thomas has quite the collection of war gear from all different eras.
He says he puts them out on display in his neighborhood each year for Memorial Day to remember the troops and his father.
He has been collecting all types of war related items and says he wanted to keep history alive and give kids a chance to learn something about the country's past.
Thomas says if his collection could talk, it would be able to tell stories for years.
