You should be pleased. Nothing works better than a little elbow grease and attention to detail. Very nice job.

Re: 81MM Mortar

Haha. I agree Rick. Is apparent he never worked recovery, military or civilian. Also apparent he didn’t attend schooling the Air Force gives prior to loading on their aircraft. I went to a three day course to load on C-130. Always amazes me to see so much effort put on tie down to keep from falling ...

Re: 81MM Mortar

That’s a fact on both counts. Round has to spin to arm it’s self. Still that was enough for me. To see last round on 3 gun come out on fire not good. I was base gun #2.

This guy was at the rally. BDU’s and spit shined Corcoran jump boots. Uniform of 80’s until late 1998 at least. I know because I was wearing these uniforms during that time period myself.

Re: Stars

I will check my research papers on the stars. I don’t recall the TM from memory, but I have the information. I do recall, the
