After an inquiry by U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., the Pentagon is reversing a decision to limit the Fort Snelling Memorial Rifle Squads access to the ceremonial rifles they use for military burials.
And to ensure other veterans dont face similar red tape, Kline also is introducing legislation that will enable the Army to loan or donate excess rifles to eligible organizations including local chapters of the American Legion and VFW.
The move comes after members of the Rifle Squad complained to Kline, a retired Marine Colonel, that the Army wanted to recoup a number of their vintage ceremonial rifles, forcing many of the groups aging members to adjust to more modern, unfamiliar weapons.

Thank you, John Kline!
Kline keeps a low profile. Hope he steps up in the future.
Hope the new districts will be good for him.
“Hope he steps up in the future.”
I see him every year at the county fair and give him an earful.
He always wins going away...
The highlight of his year I’m sure ggggg
My question is what is happening to the Army? They are becoming dumbasses from political correctness (The Ft. Hood massacre as a workplace occupational disaster to Rules of Engagement in Afghanistan).
Glad my son fought in Iraq under a President and Army leader (Gen. Tommy) and a division (3rd ID), that wanted to win.
Today, all the Army wants to do is bend over and kiss Obama’s ass, and that of Panetta, a leftwing fool.
It was really bad in the 90s when Slick Willie was in charge. They (the Military Corporiate Elite) had not seen is coming and were scrambling to become PC, without telling the rest of us underlings that we were left out on our own.
Can you say current conflict in AFFFY Land? Same thing.
The military (Army) is good at killing! So it should be. The military (Army) is not expected to be the political stooges of the now current administration, however, the Brass forget that.
“My question is what is happening to the Army? They are becoming dumbasses from political correctness”
Boy, you can say that again.
Guess those chair polishing generals are not only ready, willing, and able - but actually eager - to kiss political (as in Leftist) butt for promotions.
When John Kline was first running for office, I was working for Lockheed Martin and he showed up in front of the building. I asked him if I could take one of his signs and he said yes.
There was a news reporter present and I got his attention. After John Kline departed, the reporter asked me why I was such a strong supporter and where I lived. The reporter was even more shocked, when he realized that John Kline was not even in my home district.
As we walked to my car carrying the sign, I explained to the reporter something very simple: It does not matter what district I may live in, but once elected, John Kline will be representing me in Washington.
I trust him and wanted him to represent me.
Twelve years later, John Kline has never let me down!
