GI Joe Lunch Box

<< >>
Description (Brief)
This metal lunch box was made by Thermos in 1967. The box has a collapsible plastic handle and one metal snap. The lunch box features GI Joe, a toy action hero produced by Hasbro since 1964. Each side features a member of the Armed Forces, the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines heroically performing their duty in action packed images. This box would have been made in the thick of the Vietnam War era, which is where the action seems located.
