WWII Paratrooper Veteran Don Burgett Praises the M1 Garand Rifle

don burgett praises the m1 garand rifle

This WWII has good reason to praise the M1 Garand Rifle. The semi-automatic military rifle saved his life on multiple occasions.

This WWII paratrooper has unbelievable stories to tell about how the M1 Garand saved his life.

While fighting in Europe, Don Burgett says the M1 Garand never jammed. He says it had plenty of power over other available arms and one shot was all it ever took. Burgett fought in the thick of it all over Europe and the M1 Garand Rifle was always there for him.

We salute Burgett for his service and protecting our freedom. We’d also like to give a special thanks to YouTuber 31Mike for sharing this great video!
