Headed Home

The M-16 was controversial for jamming but I carried 5 containers of LSA (lubricating oil) and treated mine to a heavy coat often. When artillery men are using small arms things are not going as planned and I wanted my M-16 to work at such a moment. Several cleanings a day were the norm and under dusty conditions that was not enough. A helicopter gunship when available trumped an M-16.
