thanks dagger, i thought so. some units where still carry the .45 also. did ya"ll know that they still use the zipp gun? figuered that they"d retired them along with the m60 mg.
i too liked the general, he was straight forward, knew what had to been done. he shot from the hip, no b.s.
redfish... was it him or the bde. commander that came over the comm, and gave a little speech, prayer, right before we crossed the burms??? i can"t remember.
