L1A1 mural

At the Pentagon on the second floor down the hallway near the A800 offices is a wall mural honoring the Aussies and Kiwis in Vietnam. Great picture of Aussie troops crossing a river carrying L1A1s. Very clear picture measures 12 ft high X 25 (maybe more) long.

Yeah,

Ive seen it several times but have never had time to stop as Im usually running late for a meeting or my coworkers that have the car keys need to get home. You could spend hours in the Pentagon its almost a damn museum.

...and a minty Aussie L1A1 in the glass case in that corridor's display, along with other weapons... I keep meaning to write it's serial number down to check its background.

denny, it is a public building and they give tours. You can't get access into the work spaces, per say (not good for the general public to see all the sadness), but if you take a trip to DC: https://pentagontours.osd.mil/Tours/tour-selection.jsp

Yeah,

I'm pretty sure that rifle is an AD62 IIRC. Tried to stop and take a photo but thought better of it and put my phone back in my pocket. Two 3 Stars walking down the hall kinda eye balled me.

Maybe next time
