Great looking game table, I really like the dried river bed effect.

It is a pipe dream that a US Marine squad would be at full strength of 14. From my interviews with Marine vets seems most rifle companies operated at around 70% paper strength.

Some were very under strength, yet it appears that the Marines would still maintain the 3 fireteam organization. One guy stated that with a squad of 8 men they had 2 x 2 man fire teams, 1 x 3 man fireteam and a SL.

Another comment I heard was that the M-79 40mm grenade launcher (listed as the weapon of the ASL) was given to the worst shot in the squad as nobody could miss with that.

Great stuff, and I need that gaming mat! Is that shaved-down teddy bear fur, or homemade, or what??
