    I just now came across this video while researching some reloading info and just had to check it out. Wow, what a great story! You could really feel the genuine graditude he had for being awarded his black cap and the rifle.

    I was pleasently surprised when I saw his division patch on his sleve that he was in the same division my dad served in at the Battle of the Buldge..the 99th (checkerboard). Those were tough and courageous men who we owe our freedom to. I just wish my dad was still alive so I could have shown him that video.

    Great video. My dad was a WW2 vet. He saw action in the south pacific during some of the worst parts of the war. He also carried the 03 springfield. when i was just a pup he ordered 2 03's from the nra magazine and paid 7$ apiece for them for he and my older brother. He sporterized them by cutting off the front metal band and took off the manlicher style stock. he was a crack shot with his rifle just using the old army issued peep sights. after his eyesight started going downhill my brother had the barrel shortened and mounted a 4x scope on it for him. Much venison was harvested with this rig. God bless those old timers. we owe them a great debt. AJ
