Big And Little Agony

Rifle Marksmanship and Data Book M14 1964 Bob Loon

Digging around through my ‘artifacts’, I found another jewel from boot camp – my U.S. Marine Corps Rifle Marksmanship And Data Book (For U.S. Rifle 7.62-MM, M-14). Memories of Camp Matthews [1964] just roared back – living in those tents, running up and down ‘Big and Little Agony’, burying our rifles (with bolts open) in the sand and pouring water on them (rifle inspection hadn’t turned out very well, I guess), showering in less then warm water. Awe, yes… those were truly very informative days!

  1. Ah yes, Big Agony and Little Agony. I remember them well. Back in 1962 our D.I. ran us up and down them till we puked!
