Good story,some misinformation about the rifles and their fate but good story anyway. :)

I know a couple of guys looking for their fathers and grandfathers M1 rifles. I have one about 300 off the serial number of one of them.

A while back (2 or 3 months) I spoke with a 93 year old clerk-typist soldier of WWII who had the carbine he carried from his typewriter to the front line foxhole during the Battle of the Bulge! He mentioned to me he had just been to his doctor for his yearly check up and the doc told him he had at least 15 more years!

Not quite the same thing but...,,
Writer Mickey Spillane was a pilot during WWII. After the war, some time in the fifties, he bought a surplus P-51. Checking the SN against his log book turned out he had flown the same P-51 during the war.
