Whatever era , there is no shame in being an Infantryman...
Riflemen , taking and holding ground are what wins wars.

The removal of the rifle from the hands of the rifleman on the stamp is insulting and a affront to those who have served as Infantrymen...after all it was the rifle , in the hands of those who have been trained in its use , that won the battles of The Meuse Argonne...Chateau Thierry...and many others...

With predictable results.:confused:
