Badass story time! So my great grandfather fought in the second world war and helped liberate Belguim and Holland! One day, while liberating Belgium, they encountered a mansion in one of the Belgian towns that ended up being the headquarters of the German Generals that were stationed there! He searched around the mansion looking for a keep sake from the war and went up to the attic, where he found this giant german war Crest of the german eagle! He at first wanted to take the whole thing, but it weighed like 200 pounds and there was still a war going on so he clearly couldn't take the whole thing. So what he decided to do was cut off the head of the german eagle and brought it with him through the rest of the war and the eagle head has been in the family ever since! .
