Gentlemen you have brought up a long hidden truth, we Northerners are
just natural born riflemen (that ought to bring up a few comments)!
My offered opinion regarding Southern rural versus Northern urban, has
been in print many times (please don't ask me where), as well as the
Southern cavalrymen being superior (initially) to Northern cavalrymen
(Civil War not Korea...sorry to get off subject). It all had to do with
typical background environment.
The one memory I have about rifle instruction was don't swing the weapon
away from the target, toward the instructor. That was a sure way of
getting a boot in the head. By the way, wasn't the Springfield great for
physical drill under arms?
By the way did any of you serve at Inchon/Chosin with Al Dytkiewicz
(USMC) from Chicago? We were in ROTC together in at South Shore High
School. Wondered how he's doing.
