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

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    Hard to imagine the mental aspect of those soldiers.
    Froze, hungry, and retreating. Could not be much worse.

    There was a Rochester Gas and Electric lineman that made the news back in the 70's as he worked on the poles in the winter with a flannel shirt. He was part of the frozen chosen and said Rochester winters were never as cold as Korea

    My pastor was there. He promised God to serve him if he got him through it alive. He is a man of his word. He is one of the reasons I joined the Marine Corps.

    The Reservoir

    The GCAicon did several articles on a local boy who was awarded The Medal there: Hector Cafferata. His story if included in "The Last Stand of Fox Company," a fabulous book on part if that battle. Here he is drinking coffee on my patio. He passed in 2016.

    One of my friends at a gun club I belonged to is in the Last Stand book, Roland Hutchison. He was in the USMC Reserve, based in Toledo Ohio. Talk about Once a Marine always a Marine, he took top prize!

    One of guys that I know said the USMC went around to the high schools in the late 1940's to get young kids to
    join the USMC Reserve. My friend was in Boston and had his mother co sign in 1948 so he could join. When
    the Korean War started he was sent to boot camp and then by aircraft to California to his ship. Got to Korea
    just in time for the Incheon invasion. He said they drove across the frozen Yalu River in trucks scouting the area.

    He said really bad conditions at Chosen once the Chinese came down but he made it out

    I recently heard it stated that the US army/airforce sent bandsmen to Korea as well as combat soldiers during the Korean war. Would their role have been as stretcher bearers and to assist the medics as in the Britishicon army?
