Thanks for the post. I have lost all of my family that were in WW II.
They were all strong Men and not all but most were great shooters too.
They all, to include the ones that didn't shoot a lot, loved a good rifle.
There is good therapudic value to having a good rifle.
Look at the smile on that man's face as he handles that Garand if you think I am wrong.
It is no stranger to him, and he loves it.
Hell yeah! Go 116th INF, "Stonewall", VAARNG. Loved seeing that boy, WIA, that took out that kraut pillbox. How they landed and took those beaches is beyond me. Only their great-grandfathers in the original Stonewall BDE can rival them.
