Name That Mortar


PNW Arms needs your help to come up with a better name for one of their mortar systems. It’s the heaviest one in their arsenal, however, it needs a better name. Its sister is called NanoMortar and they are pretty high on that name since it only weighs a little over 12 pounds. To enter, post your proposed name on their Facebook photo.

To attract some good names (and bad ones too) they will be giving away to two things: 200 Rounds of 300BLK Match or 7.62×51 Sniper ammunition and their military patches to the name we choose.

You can still win some ammunition by sharing and liking the Facebook post to attract others who may be better with the written word. This part of the contest will be for a $250 gift certificate to their online store and a secret squirrel military patches to boot.

    Name it the “William L Nelson” or perhaps the “Full Nelson”.

    Rank and organization: Sergeant, U.S. Army, 60th Infantry, 9th Infantry Division. Place and date: At Djebel Dardys, Northwest of Sedjenane, Tunisia, 24 April 1943. Entered service at: Middletown, Del. Birth: Dover, Del. G.O. No.: 85, 17 December 1943. Citation: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at risk of life, above and beyond the call of duty in action involving actual conflict. On the morning of 24 April 1943, Sgt. Nelson led his section of heavy mortars to a forward position where he placed his guns and men. Under intense enemy artillery, mortar, and small-arms fire, he advanced alone to a chosen observation position from which he directed the laying of a concentrated mortar barrage which successfully halted an initial enemy counterattack. Although mortally wounded in the accomplishment of his mission, and with his duty clearly completed, Sgt. Nelson crawled to a still more advanced observation point and continued to direct the fire of his section. Dying of handgrenade wounds and only 50 yards from the enemy, Sgt. Nelson encouraged his section to continue their fire and by doing so they took a heavy toll of enemy lives. The skill which Sgt. Nelson displayed in this engagement, his courage, and self-sacrificing devotion to duty and heroism resulting in the loss of his life, was a priceless inspiration to our Armed Forces and were in keeping with the highest tradition of the U.S. Army.

    Did they say how much time we had?

    I just posted this on their fb thread, but my first thought is “Ezekiel”. (The troops would probably shorten it to Zeke.) According to the Bible, Ezekiel called down fire from heaven, which is pretty bad ass and the perfect symbol of a big ass mortar.

  7. Desert Lizard says:

    It wasn’t Ezekiel – it was Elijah, which is also a cool name.

    I’m liking “Full Nelson”. Should mean something, not just be cool.
