Is that a 40 mm grenade launcher?  Glad I just repaired and ran generators when I was in back in the early 70s!

In the Air Force I was a 54350, Electrical Power Production Specialist.  In the Kansas National Guard I was a 19D, Cavalry Scout, but was never MOS qualified.  The last year and a half I was a 75B. Admin Specialist, aka 'Remington Raider."  Much can be said about having different backgrounds in the military.  And I thank you, along with two older brothers who also held the line.
