This is a Great bit of History!
Now here's a picture to save for History!
I came across an empty 50 cal ammo can at my Dad's house. It was a case of 22 long rifle rimfire ammo.
People mention a gun or ammo at school today and it's on CNN.
Back in the Day, this is how the Navy, Army and DoD shipped ammo to the High School. This can was shipped to North Augusta Senior High school. I practiced a lot and Me and my Rifle Team won many matches around the South with ammo that came out of this can.
We not only had firearms in our cars and trucks, we carried pocket-knives. We got in fights like all kids do but it was a fight and Never escalated to a stabbing, shooting or worse!
Times were so much better when it was OK to be the winner or to lose and all the Kids didn't think the only thing that mattered was themselves.
Maybe I'm just a bit old for today's thinking but looking back, I hate that kids today can't have the same experiences.
One of My Grown daughters favorite memories is when I took her to a set of railroad tracks and we put coins on the track before it got there. After the train passed, She loved the leaves made from the coins.
I'm So Glad I found this history that is a part of My personal History!
Please share Your personal Memories! That makes everybody's day brighter!
