Reminds me of my Basic Training graduation book. It has many pictures in it that were taken at various points during 3-1-1 Company Basic Training at Fort Ord in the summer of 1973. All most all the pictures were staged and I appear in four or five of them. Good times.

I remember reading a story of the BAR on Iwo Jima. A Japanese soldier took cover behind a large piece of coral and couldn’t be dislodged. They called up the BAR man and he commenced chipping away at the coral until the Japanese wasn’t behind cover anymore. Awesome firepower.

Good full auto rifle. Had two speeds. You didn’t want to be on the wrong side of one. They were heavy and magazine, not belt, fed. I still remember part of something we marched by; “Don’t give me a b a r honey. Don’t give me a b a r babe….

Arm up and carry on
