    Just an example of art imitating life. Of course, he earned his right to carry it whatever way he wished.

    As many were. I miss those guys very much and feel fortunate to have been "entertained" by guys who lived it.

    That was back when a rounder could always go into the Marines or Army to escapejail. The service often squared them away. These days a record can disqualify you for enlistment.

    I love the story, true or not, about the guy whose sergeant demanded he recite the serial number of his Springfield rifle... The guy shouted "One, Sergeant!" Turned out he really was issued #1... they immediately grabbed it from him and sent it to the SA Museum
    Real men measure once and cut.

    The Rolex would be worth far more than the M1icon $ wise. Paul Newman's Rolex Daytona sold for $15.2 Million.
    I am going to find a good Lee Marvin movie to watch.
