And the glorious general led the advance
With a glorious swish of his sword and his lance
And a glorious clank of his tin-plated pants. - Dr. Seuss

Interesting! Had your father-in-law served with the US Army?

He was a second lieutenant in the 2nd Division, commanding the heavy weapons platoon in his company.

I got a most interesting letter from my father-in-law about his .50 caliber gun. I have added it to my post  https://corlearshookfencibles.blogspot.com/2021/09/sniping-with-m2-50-caliber-machine-gun.html
Scroll down for his account.

Fantastic, very interesting.
I do hope you’re father-in-law tells the other story.  :)
