Thirty-five years ago, my father-in-law, Larry Sr., (a.k.a. Grandpa Joan) purchased this canteen, in Utah, at an Army surplus store. He used it for camping, wood badge training and scouting.

Larry (a.k.a. daddy, husband and Mr. Awesome) remembers using it growing up for scouting.

Larry and Laird (a.k.a. our inspiring survivalist - Bear Grylls is his hero, besides his daddy, of course), are going to clean it up so Laird can use it.
I love that this is a third generation water canteen that will share memories of use.

PS - Overall, it is in excellent condition. They don't make things the way they used to.

I remember Dennis having one of these back in the day.
