Awesome yarns boys...

 

yeah, I'm really enjoying it. It's funny hearing OD and Iron tell stories that sound just like ones I've got even though they were tanking 20 years before I was. Platforms change but a tanker is a tanker and the job is the job.

I've got a 2'x3' framed copy of that picture hanging on my wall. Wife had it made and waiting for me as a welcome home present.

We were talking about Fury earlier, but who can name this movie:

 

You know our standing orders! (Hands out grenades)

 

What??

 

Out of commission, become a pillbox. Out of ammo, become a bunker. Out of time... become heroes.

 

You're out of your mind!!

 

Now... together. (TC pulls pin)

 Missed the M551 Sheridan, if you could call a Sheridan a Tank,

 

I spent my military career in the 82nd and wasn't exposed much to tankers.  I found M551 not much of an upgrade to a turtle-back HMMWV with M-19 mount.  We had one burn in out on Rhine / Luzon drop zone.  It lost one chute and came in hot, popped the turret right off thing ... which is why the heavy drop pass always goes out first.

THE BEAST. Older movie, released in 1988. The VHS copy they had at MACC was worn the hell out though, swear that it was practically part of the curriculum and was absolutely required viewing to serve on my tank crew. Check it out, bet you'll like it.

I've been using the forums built in tools, if the image is already on the internet it's easy enough to copy paste the URL into  the add image toolbox.  On forums in the past I've used photobucket when I want to keep photos I'm sharing easily accessible, or tinypic if I just want to upload it quickly but not keep it for later use.
