This is the presentation rifle presented to my father from a fellow Airborne Artillery Lt. Col. for coming in via helicopter to eradicate tree top snipers that had one of his platoons pinned downed. The rifle is interesting as you can see the burned finger marks of this right handed sniper on the stock of the rifle. All numbers matching. As my father was in the copter and fired the rocket he also received the The Air Medal for his actions.
This is proudly displayed in the bunker with all his other memorabilia from 38 years served and 3 wars (WWII, Korea & Viet Nam).
