I'm not exactly sure how old this is or if it's current or not. Sure is a Purdy M1 though.

Yep, you're right. It's a M14. I should have known by the barrel guard right off the bat. I feel like I do no alcohol for life. Being a tow truck driver 24/7, you never know when you're getting a call. Someday I'll give in and give it up.

I figured this was an older pic, but didn't realize it was this long ago. If I understand right, Sept, 30, 1997.

My guess is she is not on that detail any longer. Their being killed in action they should be able to show respect for the unknown dead.
