Death from Below Belt Level

Yeah, kids were tough back then. You know, Scout Camp was really just a code word for Boot Camp. Honest. I personally led the 32nd Woodchuck Division on a pre-naptime snipe hunt.

We didn't get any, but the older kids really appreciated the way we kept those snipes at bay.

They mentioned it quite often!


  1. My friend Charles had one of these. We used it to play WWII all the time. For some reason, we never fought the war in Vietnam, even though it was going on at the time.

  2. This ad contributed to the rumor that the real M-16 rifle was made by Mattel. Judging by the M-16 jammamatics I handled in the Army, Mattel might have done a better job.
