    They've made a lot of modifications to the original, like M16A2 that came out in the 80's

    Out in the Atlantic, me and Purfoy showing which way the 3" gun was suppose to be pointing. The officers didn't find it funny.

    I was never in the military, but I really like the old style bell bottom dungarees. I see that there are some surplus stores that still sell them (and they're cheap). I might actually buy a pair.

    My current winter coat is an official issue peacoat I bought from an Army-Navy store.

    My first assignment after boot camp as an E-2, USCGC Reliance. 210ft Cutter. In the far north Atlantic. 8 hours on duty, 8 hours off duty. 3 hours would be spent breaking up ice on the ship, then the next 5 hours you were a gopher on the Bridge.

    U.S. Coast Guard base Yorktown, Virginia, basically just a bunch of barracks and a baseball field.

    LOL! We only had film camera back then, so I had to scan these. I had a real expensive Vivitar camera at that time that I picked up at PX.

    Cool pics guys! My dad's ex Navy and served on the Midway and fueled planes (purple shirts, I think). Wish I could share some of his photos, but it was lost in a house fire about 10 yrs ago.

    Sorry to hear about the house fire.

    Of course you would know that I was a 49ers fan when I was stationed in Alameda

    I thought as much. But was also thinking, "I hope he wasn't a Raiders fan". LOL

    I still have my peacoat issued to me in boot camp. Though if I try to put it on I start singing fat man in a little coat like Chris Farley.
