In this age of atomic bombs, jet planes,. airplane carriers, radar, and submarines, and other great weapons of war, we should not forget one of the oldest of the great weapons used by men throughout the ages. One that has carried his master, has suffered, and given his life for his country on battle grounds the world over. One such weapon is retired and grazing in a pasture at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, today. He sometimes stands in the cool of the early morning and gazes off with the "look of an eagle," thinking of the days when he pulled his gun into action in World War I. This is his story.
