Korea Vet Reunited with His Rifle

Some say that a rifle is a soldier’s best friend, which would explain a vet’s excitement over receiving the gift of the very M1 Garand he had been issued during the Korean War. Using the weapon’s serial number, the vet’s son managed to track down the rifle through the Internet and buy it for his father’s 79th birthday.

Let’s hope that he remembers how not to get the dreaded “M1 thumb”.
