The original owner of this briefcase was US Captain Kenneth T Salls. Born in 1898 in Vermont, Salls joined the US army in 1918 at the tail end of World War I. He went on to serve in World War II as a US Army Captain, during which he was issued this specific briefcase. He served a long military career from there, eventually retiring in 1958, after 40 years of service as a US Army Major.
