Marine safeguards Corps’ relics in basement

Donald Rollette, a retired Reserve Marine, stands beside his favorite collectable, an authentic World War II Marine Corps jeep, in front of his house in Baltimore, Oct. 16, 2012. Rollette has been collecting military items since he was 10 years old, eventually creating a personal museum in his basement. He takes the vehicle to many car shows and military displays where he won countless prizes for its authenticity. Just like all the pieces in his museum, it is an original vehicle with original parts.
