Well, Boq (and all within strking distance of The NoVa),  if you mosey out to the Tank Farm in August you can see one of these beauties in action, up close and personal! 
Hey! That's Gunny in the vid! He does all our flamethrower demos at the Tank Farm!

My dad was a flamethrower operator for the Army in Korea.
Ooooo! Me wanna's goes!!!!!
And... you give us the talk, but not the walk, Boq?  Weak sauce, boyo, weak sauce.
Bq - i shall send ye the particulars.

As for the walk...

SKK - I got to feel the heat out of that puppy.  Chalk me in for August at your playground. :-)
You got it, Boq! And I promise you, it throws a whole lotta heat a mighty long ways!  It sounds nice, too. Like a sudden burst of burning gelignite.

SKK you do know of course that the Gunny's office is just across town from me...
Dave, Are you serious? I thought he was out at Quantico! 
GYSGT Williams and his folks do a great job.

I so love these little victories...

1967, huh? That was right before the S'mores recipe got changed, and JMH was still experimenting with an "adult" version featuring distilled marshmallow root, and...
I always thought so too...but our female Assistant Scoutmaster works at a flower shop in town and he is always stopping in to place orders.
