I enjoy these posts on bayonets: My Dad was in Army basic training in the late-1950's, DIs were, I am sure, Korean and maybe WWII vets. Pops says the only time the DIs got a bit "sketchy" was when the order came to "fix bayonets".
Pops also got pulled to do guard duty for prisoner transport when he was in the Reserves. The Sergeant asked if he was qualifed with a shotgun and he said no. Took him to the range, gave him two shells and told him to shoot the silhouette 15 yards away. When he hit the target (both times!), the Sergeant told him he was now qualified with a shotgun.
