Interesting article on the M1 Garand, a rifle George S. Patton famously declared the "the greatest battle implement ever devised."

    We carried them in the honor guard. Did a parade and the Vietnam vets were right behind us in the line up. As we were waiting for the parade to start, the vets asked if they could hold our M1s. They got down right emotional about them. Said they carried one through the jungles and it was like their best friend.
