Auto-Ordnance Corporation was proud to be a sponsor of the 30th Annual Veterans Day Parade and Freedom Ball “Honoring the Greatest Generation – Our World War II Veterans” in Atlanta.
During the Freedom Ball ceremonies Auto-Ordnance Corporation presented to Sergeant First Class David Mace, of the United States Army, a new M1 .30 Caliber Carbine Paratrooper Model This Carbine is truly a “Piece of American History” produced, using newly manufactured parts, in Worcester, MA, USA. This Carbine represents the firearm designed for U.S. Paratroopers in WWII such as those seen in the HBO’s mini series “Band of Brothers”. Serving as Parade Grand Marshals were James Madio, who portrayed Sgt. Frank Perconte, and Ross McCall, who portrayed Cpl. Joseph Liebgott in the HBO mini-series.
