POTD: M60 Light Machine Gun, Still Used for Training

    Akaitama sent us these photos he took of a M60 Light Machine Gun he used during Reserve infantry battle formation training. His staff sergeant said the gun had been used in the War in Laos (1953-75). This would make it about three times as old as the men who train with it.

    Also note the M1 Garand

    Akaitama did not say which Army Reserves he served with and I do not recognize the uniform. M60 and M1 Garands were, and still are, widely used in Southeast Asia for arming reserve and training units.
