NEW Story: Naval Commando
The 1st Volunteers Regiment became among the most decorated in Vekllei history for their bravery and sacrifice in Zaire.
After 140 days of brutal combat marked by mud, hand-to-hand fighting, infiltrators, scavenging, mortar-fire, terror, and unparalleled bravery, they were home.
Coretti, a rifleman of the 1st, is wearing Barracks Dress, which is between day fatigues and formal dress in formality.
She wears a gi (a ceremonial Oslolan pleat), her sabre (all infantry are trained swordsmen), service revolver, and her awards, including her Medal of Valour.
