    Another post for the newer guys. Look at this file dated 1936. It calls for all unit to have the M1 Garand issued for all troops. Notice where main forces are to be issued.



    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.
    ps Could use some hits. I hope to have both sites update in soon. Have fun hope you enjoy and learn.

    Thanks. Wondered where you were as I hadn't seen much of you lately.

    BTW, did you see the NYT article on Arctic cold war submarine surveys of the Soviet Union coastline in 1970. One of the slide show photos portrays a crewman standing polar bear watch with an M1 while the sub (Queenfish) is surfaced.

    Garands sure got around.
