    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    Interesting that GIs were issued shoe packs AND boots, over 90% discarded one or the other to reduce weight. The GCAicon Journal did an article on the subject of what MOS carried what weight and what was discarded to reduce it. Fascinating. They even threw away mess kit knives and forks, only kept the spoon!
    Real men measure once and cut.

    The guy doing the stick pointing has a M7 grenade launcher on his M1icon rifle. I wonder how long he kept it, as it made his rifle a straight pull only... no semi-auto function.
