This has probably been asked before, but... is there any information on garand serial #'s out there that give an indication of what units a Garand was issued to, where and when.
I have an M-1 Carbine my father brought back from Korea. It has some nicks and dings in the wood .... sometimes when I look at it I wonder what the backstory is to some of those marks.Yeah, that's kinda what I figured. The Army only keeps records for 7 years at the most if your lucky. I was only wondering if there was a resource for research into that area. But it would really be cool if we could find out where our rifles were sent to and if they ever saw any use in combat. The world may never know...:dunno:
Many thanks guys.
