    For whatever reason, I am unable to play your link

    Mine was just a screen shot from my phone. I'm 46. I was in 6th grade in 1983/84. It was an old song then taught to us by a very old teacher. She was awesome. I'm sure she was a WWII era woman. Might have been a Vet herself.

    Holy crap, you ARE old! My father was born in 1945 and you got that beat! Good to see that firearms still hold an interest to you, it gives me hope that my interest won't wane in the future.

    AMEN, war baby, 1943. I am very fortunate, mother-time has been kind. The key is to stay active, my "shock absorber" system crashed and burned , therefore running is out, so I speed walk and shoot 2-3 times per week.


    EDIT, forgot to add: the year your father was born, is the year the 1st American Soldier was killed in Vietnam. He was a member of the OSS. LTC Dewey shot in Saigon 9/1945.
