Not Ft. Ord, but at Ft. Dix it was the M14 during Basic training in the summer of 1964.
Ft ORD May 61 - M-1 -- Germany 61-62 Carbine-- late 62 M-14So long ago can't remember if i was trained with an M1 or M14?? I remember I could strip it and put it back together blindfolded, pronto. Today, well, can barely pull the trigger housing out on my M14. Curious if any out there were at Fort Ord (on the bay near S.F Ca.) back in the day and what rifle we trained with.
Nope, did not use a rifle after that but did a typewriter....... thank you. cadiz
