We had one or two scrounged still at the end of the war.

Great Pics! It's great seeing our American Soldiers carrying this beautiful rifle in battle.

Great pics! I'm very happy the M14 has found a new role in the modern Warfighter's arsenal as well. Good rifles should never be cut up and destroyed the way our government has done the M14!

Awards Showcase

One of the guys I've done business with, he is now a principal in one of the Architectural firms in Austin, TX. He made the Life Magazine, he is the guy behind the point man. He still loves to shoot the 14s.

The point man has no sling; I doubt that he's going very far that way. Due to the light loads shown (one canteen, no helmet bands, chin strap strapped) these guys must be on local perimeter patrol.

Thanks for your service. I'm truly sorry that our country didn't treat returning Vietnam vets as they should have been, and I'll never forgive the left for that. However, we didn't make the same mistake twice and the Iraqi vets returned to thanks and honors.

We should have kept the M14 instead of switching to the AR platform, though. If you're going to reach out and touch someone, they tend to react a lot more satisfactorily if your bullet caliber starts with .3 instead of .2.

Thanks from randywms

I feel, and this is my opinion, every deployment I came back from in my 20 plus years of service I, and all those with me got thanks because of the guilt this nation rightly feels over how our troops were treated coming home from Viet Nam. My Father and 2 Uncles served their and each one of them were treated like trash. Those Men and Women who served then made sure today's troops never come home to the same thing.

I love and respect every one of them for that.
