CQ had just opened the arms room, gotten us our .45's and locked everything back up, Korea, 1973. A pair of Katusa's were late (Korean soldiers attached to US bases) and the black guy pulling charge of quarters duty was pissed that he had to unlock everything again. After he unlocked the 3/4" steel bar that went across the door of the arms room, he spun and raising the bar overhead, brought it down on the head of one of the Koreans . you could tell that he was going to stop it just short of the guy's head, tho. Instead, the Korean brought his boot up over his head, turned sideways and blocked the bar. If he'd instead used his arm, it would have been shattered.
