    I was the driver. We all made it out. Just got beat up pretty bad. That tank belonged to D Co 1-66 Armor, 1BCT, 4ID just north of Camp Taji right on MSR Tampa.

      My brother. I was in your sister unit, 3-66AR out of FT. Hood during this timeframe and I know our brigade took some hits. I’m glad you all made it out of that situation safely.

    Verse from the U.S. Army song:

    Valley Forge, Custer’s ranks,
    San Juan Hill and Patton’s tanks,
    And the Army went rolling along
    Minute men, from the start,
    Always fighting from the heart,
    And the Army keeps rolling along.
    (refrain)

  • How the crew make out ,just shook I hope…
