I was a 12F, Engineer Tracked Vehicle Crewman. Worked on the tank, ate on the tank, slept on the tank, I have even took a dump off the tank.
It reminded me of that line from the movie Apocalypse Now, "Never get out of the boat". We didn't get off that tank unless we absolutely had to get off it.
We weren't supposed to sleep on it, but when you are digging fighting positions for Bradleys and M1s all through the night. Well two are working and two are sleeping inside and that's just the way it had to be cause the job had to get done.
Colt M1911, AR-15 | S&W Model 19, Model 27| SIG P238 | Berreta 85B Cheetah | Ruger Blackhawk .357MAG, Bearcat "Shopkeeper" .22LR| Remington Marine Magnum SP 12GA., Model 700 SPS .223
