So you were a treadhead eh Alex? What kinda tanks were you guys using?
I was but a young man, 7th Cavalary, in Santarém, Poertugal.....18yo, my tank was a M-48 A5, 105mm gun, 50 cal Browning and a allways jammed M-60 up on the turret..I like the smell of Napalm in the morning, ehehehehe
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
