Re: OAUSA Net - 10/02/14 – Edged Implements

A Tale of Two Knives: This is as much a story of "edged implements" as it is about good friends and the "code" or "creed" fostered by these relationships. It all started when I first joined the US Army as a teenager and my high school buddy followed by becoming a Marine. Rambo, First Blood was the h...
