When my mom and dad bought a house back in the 70's, the owner was a woman they knew. She left some stuff in the basement and this foot locker, belonging to her son, was there. Her son had shipped it home after the war, with his belongings. When mom found it, it had his WV Bar Association badge in it and his college fraternity paddle. I sold the paddle at a garage sale, but the locker and the badge are still with me. I had thought that they might have some historical value, but the local museum didn't want it, otherwise, I would have donated it to their collection.
It is too small to be a coffee table, or I might have pressed it into service. It is an interesting piece, especially since you can still read his name and APO address on the label, though it is faded. If you know someone who collects WW2 memorabilia, send them my way.
