I was asked to bring something specific for our big Memorial Day Barbecue.

I was told to bring an item which is depicted by the following six pictures, though I'm guessing I shouldn't take things at face value.

this

and this

Anyone know what they want me to bring?

HINT #1:

I'd like to point out that the men and women of a country's armed forces are people that their nation's citizens can count on.

HINT #2:

Hint #1 is actually, really, a hint. Two hints, actually! Really!

HINT #3:

Each of the pictures (except one, pointedly) have a number of things.

Answer:

Cheese

Reason:

3 medals, 8 men, 5 (4 arms of the '+' and 'H'), C5 Galaxy, 10 to 2 = 10x2=20, 5 medals. 3,8,5,5,20,5 = Cheese

The point:

American Cheese?

Update:

The "Never forget" 10x2=20 would correspond to 't', not 's' as I claimed - oops. That means there is a -1 involved (missing man?). Still puzzli g...

    $\begingroup$ But you're missing the point. It's in the clues. $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Jun 5 '16 at 13:57

    $\begingroup$ The "point" is an essential part of the math equation. $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Jun 5 '16 at 14:26

Well, the pointy guy is the odd man out, right? In the other pics we have a number of circles.

So, I get pi, which is the thing I'm bringing. (Apple Pie)

    $\begingroup$ You got it! And...you asked it? $\endgroup$ – Dan Russell Jun 6 '16 at 13:34

  • $\begingroup$ No points received, none expected. Just letting the world know what my pie is all about. $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Jun 6 '16 at 13:42

    $\begingroup$ Other options: offer a bounty to get the question more attention. Let it remain unanswered a bit longer. Go into chat and prod people to take a look. You never know when someone's working on your puzzle, and having the OP suddenly answer it can be frustrating. $\endgroup$ – Dan Russell Jun 6 '16 at 13:58

    $\begingroup$ I think it's more a philosophical point. Puzzling is a different kind of SE site, where users challenge one another to solve puzzles. Some highly-rated questions like this, this, and this took weeks to solve. I don't really see the value in anyone ever posting their own solution...where's the fun in that? $\endgroup$ – Dan Russell Jun 6 '16 at 14:31
