The Winter 2012 issue of MHQ featured photographs of soldiers and the odds and ends they carried to war—dolls, bicycles, and even hot tea. We’ve posted a few photos here of American GIs from 20th-century wars and "the things they carried."

Also, MHQ is asking readers to send in photos of relatives or others and what they took to war. Click here to see those photos and find out how to contribute yours.
