    Rice I enjoyed reading the part about the carbines last large scale use in Southeast Asia
    Try to keep an eye out for photos of carbines in use from this period.
    If I notice an interesting one I keep it
    These would qualitfy
    This photo is from Camp Holloway South Vietnam early 1964. The troop on guard is not an adviser

    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    I still have a few, some military and some commercial in the safes.
    pictures:
    My M-2 carbine and some of my other weapons I had in Vietnam. I got it new.
    I was trying to show the fun switch on them, but it doesn't show up good.

    Second picture is Sgt White and his Inland M-2 para. He got it new also.

    I stumbled on this clip of US Marines and USAF personnel with carbines and loaded carbine magazines on the deck of USS Midway
    April 29th 1975

    Later at 1.39 looks like Marines sleeping on deck with carbines, M 14, M 16 and Swedish K
