People with guns collection # 59

"PART OF SERIES FROM U.S.A.A.F. -- INDIANS VISIT ARMY FLYERS -- ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- During their tour of Kirtland Field here, the small arms intrigued the Indians more than anything else. They fondled the guns like veterans, and remarked how they'd like to have this gun or that to take home to shoot deer and turkey. Carpio Martinez, ex-governor of San Juan Pueblo, was especially fond of the Tommy Gun and is shown getting a few instructions from First LT. Anthony Gasparovich, director of Kirtland Field's small arms school." 6/11/44
