I got off Active Duty in 81, so this is a long time ago, but while stationed at Ft Hood we had some guys come into the unit that had rotated back from Korea. They had been assigned to an ASA listening post on the DMZ, on Thanksgiving, they got a surprise visit from LTG Emmerson, with a full turkey dinner, the problem was the cooks had a bunch of pheasants in the oven. It turned out, that they had had their M16's replaced with shotguns for guard duty, a couple of guys on R&R where they had a trap range, had brought back some trap loads. After they had killed a few by the site, word got out to the locals, who invited them to come shoot the pheasants in their fields. The shotguns disappeared a couple of day's after the General's visit.
