Thanks for sharing. One of my Grandfathers (my Dad’s Dad) was in the Pacific theater, and my Mom’s Dad was in Germany. Both have passed now, and I really miss hearing their stories.

My 22 year old 1996a2 rattles like it might come apart, but it’s never had a hiccup. I won’t even consider “fixing” it until it quits running.
