M1 Garand, August 1962 Fort Knox KY. We were one of the last training companies A-11-3, Lt. Traponi commanding, (Sgt. Newton was our platoon leader), to be issued M1's. We noticed that most of the other Basic Training companies that marched past were carrying "new fangled", M14's.
My rifle's serial number was: 1603418...has anyone seen her?
Sometimes you get what you pay for, sometimes you only pay more for what you get.

If the Bible is the literal, infallible, unerring word of God...where are all those witches I am supposed to kill? (Exodus 22:18)
