it looks like they are doing some type of ceremonial thing, how they are all at attention. Why was he standing right behind that beast when he closed it up???dang thats gotta hurt!drummerdude1188 said:the thing that gets me the most is that those other guys just stand around and casually walk over to him
Great story but the Ontos M50 didn't come out untill the mid 1950's IIRC.Fearless 51 said:My uncle is one of the Frozen Chosen from the Choisen Reservoir Korea, he tells a story about a Marine that was captured with the rest a few of the crew of an Ontos eight tube recoiless rifle that was track propelled. The North Koreans had never seen anything like it and were very curious about how it worked and demanded to be shown, the first Marine denied them and was promptly shot on the spot, the second Marine followed suit and was also shot, the third Marine finally agreed to show them how it worked but they had to be very careful as it was a dangerous weapon. He loaded all eight tubes and had them stand behind the thing when he salvoed all eight, if I remember correctly he was given the Navy Cross, posthuoumusly of course.
