Nice find @m1a1fan
Here is some more information on Sergeant Norwood Dorman that I found interesting and inspiring.

Being a Lieutenant, I wouldn't expect to see any arm patches.

Day 2

Here's a candidate for Day 2. Found on the internet titled "A soldier sleeps in the sun". Any ideas about the location or the branch of service? Notice the ragged sling?

RE:Day 2 pic
This is a Carl Mydans picture from the Life (Magazine) picture collection
I have seen this quoted as An American service man sleeps, his rifle on his lap, on a pile of rocks, Italy, May 1944.

I have also seen it quoted to the effect "on the march to Rome.

Is that a D-tip I see?

RE: Day 5 Pic.
His stock sure looks shiny, the cop looks like James Earl Jones and the creepy women in the background look like they are straight out of the "twilight zone"!

At first the smirk on his face and everyone seemingly calm made me think maybe this was a movie set.
Then I realized these were different times.

Dan
On the 29th I posted questioning the same tip...

"Can't see enough of the slings tip to be sure it's a C tip. Maybe a D tip? But after seeing the Khaki color I'd think it would have to be a C tip".

Your magnified picture makes it that much more interesting.
But I believe we're seeing the full Edge of the C tip.

I wish there was a way we could comment on these with out jumping past a newly posted Carbine of the Day picture.
Gives one the feeling of being Off Topic.
Great Idea seeing these everyday.......

Thx All

Thx Wayne,   Thumbs Up
Great picture and link of incredible people. So few, treated so badly but stepped up to serve.

I did not know about Oct 14..

Oct. 14, 1982, President Ronald Reagan declared the day National Code Talker Day.

Note the Carbine...
it's one of the items we're making now instead of Office Machines
"After 35 years, the Army goes from the pistol to the carbine. This will be the weapon for all officers up to the rank of captain, and for the supporting troops that carried pistols and relied on rifleman for defense. The new Winchester, short-actioned carbine had range enough to be a weapon of offense, whereas the .45 caliber pistol is purely a defensive weapon. The Winchester carbine is rated high, and is judges to increase the fire power of the infantry regiment be 33 percent". As reported by a prominent new magazine.

That is a much clearer picture than the one in my CCNL 159, so much so, that I breezed past it many times without ever even really paying attention to it.
