I was a platoon comander, believe it or not...had 6 tanks, (including mine, number 67). The Army made me a man, gave me commaraderie sense, responsability and decison power...I believe all young men should go, for a year, just to learn....specially your kids in America...where the youth are so rude and irresponsible....

Good old American made tank.. I could play Jingle bells banging a key in the Exhaust fins!!!

Here's something I found abut our M-48's..apparentely retired in the 90's replaced by M60's

M-48 A5 (not mine)

Congrats, Gunny!

My old man spent a career in the Corps as a CH-46 pilot. Now I'm in the Middle East as an Army (National Guard) CH-47 pilot (had to "1 up him" - haha). I grew up sailing his boats (a Catalina 22 when he made MAJ, a Catalina 30 when he made LtCol...). I started off with a Catalina 27, moved up to a Catalina 34, and am now blowing my year of tax-free war zone earnings on a Beneteau 40 (need to do it while I'm still single).

The only regret you'll have on this whole sailing/cruising thing is that you didn't do it sooner!
