  1. My wife is working on some history for her family and came across a member that those alive, still know nothing about. In her search she found that he may have joined the Military in Ohio (he was from NY) She found his name on a piece of information that said never showed up for duty and listed him as a deserter. She has tried and looked at all the sites that come up but not a whole lot on the US Military deserters from WWI, so I told her I would reach out to help her. Does anyone have any information on the outcome of US deserters or know of places to search. I did put out to her that he may have been killed before his arrival at his duty station and might have been a John Doe if robbed and had no ID on him or if he did desert he could have picked up a new identity and started a new life else ware. Still there is not a lot out there she can find on what became of deserters from the US. She is still looking but has no SSN or service # for him. any help would be great, thanks Pete
  2. Is that only M1 Grands on the FB page .. what about the Savage 303, did they not go over seas?
  3. My Brother was assigned to this Sub when it was decommissioned. My Parents, Brothers and Sisters all got invites to it. I didn't attend but had one Brother who did. thought it was kind of neat so thought I would share. My Father was in the Navy in WWII and three of my Brothers were also in, I was the rebel and was in the National Guard for 21 yrs with 6yrs active. Hope you enjoy
  4. back in the 80's we had a couple in the arms vault that were assigned to the maintenance crew, I was full time at the armory when we used a North Dakota Air Base for M-16 weapons qualification. Long story short in conversation the grease guns were mentioned and they said they would provide the ammo if we brought them along for them to shoot. So after qualification we brought them out and had some fun with there range personal. Another full auto of my to shoot bucket list
