    FASCINATING story. What a piece of history! This weapon "fought" in at least one, and possibly THREE, maybe four wars! Also shows the importance of buying a quality firearm.

    That's a fantastic story, very moving. Two honorable men doing the right thing, while never expecting anything in return.

    Semper Fi indeed, Marines.

    It was too good not to pass along.

    That is one of the best stories of good men doing good things I have ever read. Thank you for sharing!

    I wish everyone exibited that level of integrity. I am not surprised that 2 Marines did. Met very few while in the Navy but I met enough that an impression was made. Cheers Marines.
