Genuine KILL CARD D Co 2/8 Inf., Ft. Carson, Co. 1985-88

When I was in the Army, our CO Cpt. Charles T. Kallam, was an outstanding young commander. Whenever we went on field exercises, he would distribute these cards to his victims.

...oh, perhaps I should place a diecast in the picture..

Interesting Gerald !! Nice souvenir to have, but a hard way to get it !!

And you can never have too many guns strapped to a jeep !! That thing must way a ton with all that ammo on board !!

The famous SAS-jeeps (Special Air Service).

These guys went deep behind enemy lines during the African campaign to raid Rommel's airfields.

Nice model ! is this 1/42 ? Matchbox had this as a kit. it came with a GMC or Dodge 4x4 if I remember correctly.

The scale is 1/43. I believe it was a Hongwell. Neat model. I especially like it when they add character to an otherwise lifeless model, by adding figures and accessories. I get all I can when they come this way.
