Say what you will about the lowly M-1 Carbine, it has been a useful tool against the enemies of freedom around the world.

In addition to helping defeat the Axis powers in WWII, the norks and Chicoms in Korea, and in the early years of Viet Nam, it was a favorite of the IDF in securing a young Israel. Long before the United States found itself at war with Islam, the FFL employed the carbine against muslim radicals in north Africa, and carried them into battle against communist insurgents in Indochina.

No doubt there were a few on hand to witness the Battle of Athens.

I watched a documentary on this about a year ago and I was so excited about it and eager to discuss it in my quilting group the next day. None of the other ladies had heard about it. Vacant stares. I’m in the middle of Tennessee, and the ladies’ families have been here for generations. Disappointing.
