He was in the 1st Platoon of Charlie Company, 3/8th Infantry, and they had just been pulled out of the field to provide perimeter defense for the fire base at LZ Armageddon. Though the conditions were primitive, this was considered 'cush' duty compared to humping the boonies.  (If you have photos of guns in your family, send them along with some narrative, to .We’ll be happy to share your Family Guns stories!)     Read More                     Marketplace – Razor Wire – 50’ Rolls       120 rolls arrived and 44 have been sold. $50 per roll. You may be asking ‘Why do I Need Razor Wire???!!! This video may help answer that question. If a collapse comes it may be next to impossible to get it when you really will need it. Reserve yours by replying to this email.            Razor Wire                     OPINION  GUNNIES We've been asked, "What are Gunnies?" Gunnies are funnies that involve guns. Get it?! Some of you have no sense of humor.       If you have any cartoons or memes you think are worthy, send them along.       Keep it clean as befitting a family-oriented organization,  as well as non-political to keep things friendly.             See More              Email us at
