Gun-Day Monday: Marine Reunited With His World War II Rifle

THIS. Is. A. GREAT. Story.

Sadly, there are “men” in the U.S. today who won’t understand this article. They’ve never heard the bang nor felt the kick, nor the quickened pulse on the qualification range during the rapid fire string, the grimly satisfying knowledge when the trigger breaks that the round will go exactly where you wanted it to go, BECAUSE YOU HAVE MASTERED THAT WEAPON.

VMIJPP hails from the star city of the south, Roanoke, Virginia. A 1989 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, he is a retired artillery officer in the United States Marine Corps, with time in both the active and reserve sides. He served in Iraq in 2004, and in Afghanistan in 2009-2010. He joined the magnificent OPFOR.com as a guest blogger from the now defunct but never uninteresting Rule 308, where he denounced gun control and other aspects of tyranny, and proclaimed the greatness of the United States. When the sun set on OPFOR.com, he migrated here with Keydet1976 and the others.
