Provenance: Lifelong Firearm Collection of Floyd Coleman (1914 – 2015), a veteran of both WWII and the Korean War. He was also an avid firearms collector, award-winning competitive shooter, and gunsmith. Coleman first tried to enlist for service in the US Navy in 1928, at the age of 14. Discovering his young age, the Navy denied his enlistment. He then decided he would try enlisting in the Army, where they did not focus on his age, and he was accepted. He went on to serve a long and distinguished military career, which included being in the first wave to hit the beach on D-Day. His service at Normandy earned him the French Legion of Honor, awarded by the French Government. Coleman retired as a Captain on January 31st, 1957. Following his time in the service, he went on to a successful career in private aviation. You can read Coleman’s biography and detailed account of his military service at www.warriorsaga.com.
