The Battle of Agua Carta was an engagement between the National Guard of Nicaragua and the rebels of Augusto César Sandino in 1932. It was fought near Mount Kilambe at the Agua Carta, a river in Sandino territory, as part of the American occupation of Nicaragua and a long lasting civil war.

  1. Hands in pockets is only out of regulation if you’re walking. Standing with hands in pockets is completely okay. Just don’t tell First Sergeant.

  2. I think I have an authentic photo of Chesty and his entire graduating class from OTC in march 1919. It looks like Chesty seated on the front row 9th from the left. He was definately there during that time, he graduated June 1919. How could I have it authenticated?
