Congratulations to Danpbphoto for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 6 votes - View Previous Winners


You know you are getting very olde when 1 of the last surviving combat team members of 2 years is laid to rest at Arlington.
It is a very sobering experience.

This is the soldier walking duty at the Tomb of the Unknown. The M14(A) was a superb weapon but a tad heavy!

My" brother's" caisson approaches his resting place.
Duty, Honor, Country!
Hoooorah!

Nice work with these somber photos. Heart felt thanks to you and your "brother" for your service. I worked for the Department of Defense as a teacher on an army base in Germany for many years so I know the sacrifices military families make even in peace time. RIP.

Thank you Jim!
I spent 40 years as a "fed". 6(3 were credited to my 40) years as a soldier. It was a very bright cloudless day and the "hi key" , especially on the headstones, sort of took some of the solemnity out of the Honor Ceremony. Not much but some! His "brothers laid to rest" were Welcoming him home.
And thank YOU for your service in "training" people.
Dan

That is the Pentagon in the background.

These images are a fitting tribute. You really captured the atmosphere of the scene: somber and respectful, and yet having an air of sentimentality.

What others have said Dan. May your brother rest in peace.

By the way, I always preferred the M 14 over the M 16.

Roger that Allen!
I always carried a M14A(auto) with me when warranted. If you ever want to read a great book I helped with research ,both at Ft Benning and in combat, and testing, of the failures of the initial M16, it is called
"Misfire: The Tragic Failure of the M16 in Vietnam
Book by Bob Orkand and Lyman Duryea" Both officers.


Another failure is the caliber of the round was very unstable in bamboo. The bamboo leaves were so strong, it would alter the trajectory of the round off target. The 7.62 round had no trouble with bamboo.

I often wondered how many soldiers we lost in Vietnam due to the ammunition failures, jams, rounds blowing up while still in the chamber killing the GI.

Yeah the M14 was heavy but what a darn fine weapon.
Thanks!
S/F
Dan

For sure a place of reverence, Arlington should be a place for all to visit. Your loss is shared by all veterans. Great shots as usual! I also preferred the M14 and trained with the M1 so I'm telling my age.

Fine image Clyde!
I and my brothers Thank You Clyde! The M1 was NOT lost in combat in Vietnam. The ARVN's liked it because it was light and small.
YES all people should visit any military cemetery, most importantly Arlington.
Thank YOU for your service brother!
