Re: my U.S. military collection...
Springfield 03 and more (gone)
But This thread takes me back to Nam and I wondered what I could get besides the M3 grease gun I kept in the arms locker.
I figure I could have signed out A deuce and a half with 45, m16 and M60 any time I wanted to volunteer for officer of the guard and maybe get 20 troops similarly armed to fill up the truck.
Actually I got that once a week at Bien Hoa Army Base in 1971 after 2 brigades of the First Cav rotated home leaving more and more guard duty to the remaining units. The ultimate insult came when the Gary Owen Brigade of the Cav left and the Base was shrunk down to the perimeter of our BN and the BN CO became Base CO too as well as having charge of all Guards for the perimeter. Sigh, He fooled all of them by making LTG eventually (Thomas Flynn for those keeping score)
BTW in those days ammo was free, beer was a dime and Martell was $4.00 a fifth.
