Hey Dad, I found this old gun…

(Via The High Road)

…that you carried during the Korean War.

Against some pretty long odds, Virgil Richardson’s son Jim found the actual M1 Garand rifle that his father had carried through the Korean War. He’s given it to his Dad for his birthday.

That’s a heck of a present, and heck of a kid and a heck of a father. Warms my heart, it does.
