Gentlemen,
This is an EASY Question and is for all to try.
If you EVER go to the National Archives, Military Field Branch and ask for the M1 Rifle they will bring you about 20 box with about 100 more to look at. NOW lets think "How Many things in the US Military, during WW2, began with the Famous "M1” like saying, M1 Rifle or M1 Carbine. If you just say “M1” look up all the stuff you would get that starts with “M1”. I will start. Give me some “M1” "AMMO" Who is next. Remember it must start with “M1”

A Veteran, whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve, is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount of “up to and including my life.”

Thanks again for taking the time and effort to read this data. I hope you have learned a little of the history of the M1 Garand.

When it was required to let a subordinate know they had to pull their head out and look again at something right under their nose.

Gentlemen,
You may now see what I was up against in the mid-70's. No one was looking for M1 Garand data back then. So the Archives gave me box after box marked M1.
Thanks again
Clancy

Always better to have extra information than too little information, though ;)
