This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
Maybe you’ve heard that before. Maybe you’ve seen it recited on the screen, like in Full Metal Jacket. Or, maybe you’re a Marine and you’ve said it yourself.
Either way, those words were penned by a Marine General named William H. Rupertus.
Our guest today is his granddaughter, and she joins us with her co-author of a new book called Old Breed General.
They don’t make ‘em like General Rupertus anymore, and we get to know him on this episode of PICK UP THE SIX Podcast.
